2010 - Ugandan Pastor Martin Ssempa warns press against what he calls the danger of homosexuality at a press conference in Kampala. He recently mades news for planning on February 17th what he called a "million man march" in Uganda in support of the anti-homosexuality bill. While public support for the bill remains strong, the Ugandan government is concerned by international pressure and outrage over a proposed bill that would further criminalize homosexuality in the country, including adding life in prison and death sentences to the punishments.
