Editor of Ugandan Tabloid That Outed Homosexuals Explains His Devious Methods: VIDEO


Here's a fascinating new clip from the documentary Call Me Kuchu, opening today in New York. The film documents the story of slain Ugandan LGBT activist David Kato and others prominent in that country's struggle.

If you missed the trailer, which is amazing, you should watch it HERE.

You may remember that in October 2010 Uganda's Rolling Stone tabloid published the names and addresses of 100 "top homos" and called for them to be hanged. In the days that followed its publication at least four of the gay Ugandans on the list were attacked and many others went into hiding, in fear for their lifes.

UgandaIn this clip, Giles Muhame, the tabloid's Managing Editor brags about how man issues the tabloid sold, saying, "I think Ugandans are interested in looking at pictures of homosexuals" and explaining how they use a special investigative technique called "disguise" to figure out who's gay and who's not.

Says Muhame:

"You pretend you're one of them. You Join them. You drink with them. You know all the members, you get their pictures at parties, you see? (laughs) And we got all the facts."

Muhame also says he did not call for them to be hanged (even though the tabloid's cover plainly said "hang them"). "The government does that," he explains.

Watch the clip, AFTER THE JUMP...

Call Me Kuchu opens in New York today at Quad Cinema (34 West 13th Street), and will open in Los Angeles next week Friday, June 21 at Laemmle's Music Hall (9036 Wilshire Blvd).

  10. And yet Africans whine when we call them savages.

  11. You guys do realise that the gay guy was African too right? I am always fascinated by the bigoted response to homophobia that some gays express whenever there is news of attacks of minority and foreign gays by their ethnic peers. So the gay gay was a savage primate too...so why do you even care? And the gays in Russia are also slav communist scum just like their attackers. Shouldn't you be happy that these people are being murdered since you hate their ethnic group?

    It seems like these foreign reports are used as an excuse to express the innate racism or bigotry that many gays already have in their hearts.

  12. You know, journalistic integrity comes a distant second to righteous justice. You probably could have beaten the crap out of this guy, just saying filmcrew...

  13. @ "Backward dumb primates!"

    You need to make "primates" plural, dontcha', BRAINS. You'd have made the word plural even if there was no African homophobia. Your posting name is a absurd.

    @ "And yet Africans whine when we call them savages."

    Who the f.ck are "we"? Many in the world remember Auschwitz, Berkin-Belsen and the other death camps. Yes, Ozu, your kind has shown that you are perfectly capable of "savage" behavior.

    Yes, Mr Muhame is a savage, but so was Herman Goebbels only 70 years ago. Ask the Jewish people.

  14. ITA @pedro it's funny how the white homophobes who wish death on Gays are never referred to as primates or savages.They didn't even refer to guys who killed Matthew Shepherd as a savage.Racial bigotry is just as disgusting as anti Gay bigotry

    Posted by: Kim | Jun 14, 2013 5:08:49 PM

  15. @Ozu,

    A bigot, a racist, xenophobe, homophobe, misogynist, misandrist, sexist, Nazi, dogmatic, a whatever-phobe has no country, no skin color, no gender, no sexual orientation, no denomination, no theology, no hair color, no eye color, NOTHING IN PARTICULAR, but the fact that he or she is a prejudiced a-hole.

    It is not because one is African that it makes one's ignorance more partial to our own intolerance. As proof, we have legions of same-minded people here in our country, getting away with murder every day. No matter their where they were born.

  16. The man is a turd, on the same level as the Russian assholes kicking the gay man on the ground at an attempted gay pride march, the evangelical American d*ckwads who went to Africa to encourage enactment of their hateful discrimination laws against gays, the French Nazis who murdered the 19 year old gay student activist, the Islamic fundamentalists who want to murder gay people under the guise of Sharia law, and all the other violent bigots out there. Turds.

  17. @Maguitac: well said, my friend. Gots plenty...and I do mean a-plenty of anglo-christian-better-and-holier-than-thou savages in the "developed world" that feel the same way this bastard does. Hell, the good vodka-drinking, caviar-eating rooski folk are a testament! THANKFULLY, there are Russians...and Africans...and other folk who believe in dignity and respect for all humankind. They're just difficult to find, but it is becoming easier.
    To mr. muhame: stay your sorry ass in Uganda.

  18. What a waste of human skin this guy is. Well on a happy note, well sorta happy, Frank Mugisha is here in Toronto and held a conference yesterday that was insightful.

    Question... Why are some white American gays so backwards? In 2013 people still utter words like the ones i just read in some comments above? America still has a loooooong way to go.

  19. Death is too good for sociopaths like him.

    I hope fate delivers him to something significantly worse.

  20. Is it wrong to picture myself hitting his smiling face with a pipe? He'll start screaming and crying as blood is gushing out his nose and fall two feet from where he's standing. I can always dream...

  22. I know this is information that needs to be known, but I have no interest in seeing this film, it will not enlighten me. I already know more than I need to know. It is just horrifying and sad.

    Both these links offer some good background on the American involvement in this atrocity.

  24. Let's all not forget that fundamentalist American Christians made bigots like this in African countries.

  25. Philip--

    What you say is true, but it is not an excuse. These people are not children who must follow the wise counsel of Western Preachers. This man is the editor of an African rag. He is a grown adult who is solely responsible for his hateful conduct.
