Recently, social media has been awash with reports of homosexuality acts being reported in schools, prompting the parliament of Uganda to re-introduce the ant-homosexuality bill passed in 2013 and assented on by president Museveni in 2014, but would later be outlawed by the Constitutional court of Uganda.
A section of district councilors led by Hon Rosette Ahumuza, the district councilor representing Kazo and Kyampangara sub-counties moved the motion to pronounce themselves against the vice saying it cannot be allowed in the community of Kazo district.
