Uganda tabloid, Red Pepper, has accused a top official with the country’s football team of having sex with a player, and has published photos to “prove” it.
The photos detailed the alleged sexual acts with captions designed to outrage the country’s conservative population: ‘MASTER AT WORK: Mubiru nails the boys butt’, ‘shafting’ and ‘hurting the boy’, to finally ‘END GAME: The boy struggles to stand up after the bum shattering session.’ The alleged ‘young player’ was not identified nor could the validity of the pictures be confirmed.
Uganda is well-known for its inflamatory accusations of homosexuality against political enemies. Set to vote on a draconian anti-gay law any day now, one that has preoccupied the nation for over three years, this latest outrage is all too predictable. Red Pepper has often featured gay scandals to sell papers and spark public anger.
The photos of Mubiri published today may actually originate from a 2010 incident when he was accused of giving a top player an unrequested massage. We quote: "Having worked his socks off in the first of two training sessions that then national team coach Mohammed Abbas had lined up on the day, David Kalungi decided to spend the afternoon roosting in his room at the Nelson Mandela Stadium’s guesthouse. Unknown to Kalungi, someone had allegedly crept into his room. As the pint-sized midfielder sprawled on his bed with his face fronting the mattress, he felt someone apparently massage his rear. Kalungi didn’t like what was transpiring, and so he quickly got up to tell off whoever was massaging his rear. Kalungi claims that the man who was massaging his rear was a one Chris Mubiru, a maverick character who has struggled to fend off gay inferences in Ugandan football."
Today the paper tweeted: RedPepperUG: ANNOUNCEMENT: We have acquired more videos of sodomy king #ChrisMubiru roiling more boys we shall continue exposing evil in #Uganda...
Speaking with Gay Star News who broke the story, Denis Nizoka, editor of Identity Kenya said: ‘This was clearly designed to provoke a moral outrage about what is seen as a bastion of male sportsmanship – the country’s top football team.'
Lustralboy is appalled at this latest instance of muck-rating by this Ugandan publication. We, too, shall continue to expose evil in Uganda and hope that the international community shares our revulsion with the homophobic mindset that seems representative of this nation.
