The concept of the universe is that people are entitled to the benefit of doubt. It is also important to say you gave your all to educate the masses and they were deliberate to remain ignorant. The current smear campaign by the anti-gay proponents and their agents is unfortunately starting to bear fruits at the expense of a sector of the population. There are reports of lynchings, evictions, unlawful termination of employment and a string of mental health issues. Although Uganda has never been a utopia for LGBT+ persons, the current times have just made a bad situation worse.
The fact that a big fraction of Ugandans have not knowingly interacted with a queer person leaves these allegations easy to adopt as gospel truth.
