United Kingdom based African gay association issued a statement confirming George Mulindwa a.k.a Afande Kerekere as gay and warned Ugandans against discriminating him.
Many Ugandans and his fans were shocked to see Kerekere on Out & Proud Africa LGBTI Facebook page and some started throwing abuses at him.
Today, the London based gay group, Out & Proud Africa LGBTI has confirmed that Kerekere is one of them and insist no one will stop them.
“Loads of Ugandan social media bloggers have come out to castigate our friend Afande Kerekere. Directing homophobic slurs towards him, and some are wishing him dead.
Many are blatantly lying that he spoke to them about his sexuality. This Saturday 8th Feb, in London West End, Afande Kere Kere shall shine a light on who he is, and why he is in London and indeed refutes the porkies on the social media. Join us and hear from the man himself,” the statement reads.
