This week has had George Collins Mulindwa alias Afande Kerekere take over different blogging platforms over a plastering of his images adorned in a T-shirt with words “We exist” branded on it. This pushed many blogging platforms to come out and point out how Afande Kerekere had used such a stunt as a declaration of his sex orientation, branding him gay.
A social media LGBTI platform called Out & Proud African LGBTI based in England and unites all African LGBTI people took to their social media timelines and declared how Afande Kerekere will come out on 8th February in East London to clear the air about the gay hullabaloo. In their social media post, they seemed not happy with the Ugandan bloggers and news sites that were ‘castigating their friend Afande Kerekere.’
Afande Kerekere was recently given walking papers from his places of work at Bukedde Tv and Galaxy fm, two great media houses in Uganda and this has led people to think that it might had been the reason for his sacking.
The Ugandan constitution does not approve gayism. Under the penal code act, “carnal knowledge against the order of nature,” anyone convicted of such a crime is prone to a potential penalty of life imprisonment.
George Collins Mulindwa was born to Joyce Nakitende, a Taylor and John Bosco Lubega. As a young boy, Mulindwa attended Shimoni Demonstration School and later Kololo High School for Our level where he later joined Bishop’s senior school for An level.
