MP David Bahati

That’s according to Warren Throckmorton, who has been talking with with M.P. David Bahati over the phone:

In addition to campaigning for re-election during the recess, Mr. Bahati plans to travel to the United States next week with a group of MPs to attend the 2010 Winter Conference of the  International Consortium of Governmental Financial Management. The conference will be held in Washington DC from Dec. 6-8.

Parliament is now in recess in preparation for the February Parliamentary elections. Bahati expects the Anti-Homosexuality Bill to be considered during the Parliament’s lame-duck session between the elections and the installation of the next Parliament in May.

How does someone like this get a Visa to enter the U.S.? He isn’t on the ambassadorial staff so there is no question of diplomatic purposes.

The issue isn’t just Bahati – it is the American evangelicals who have funded and encouraged the bill. What can we do about them?

I blog in Uganda and have written about the issue here: http://conserveuganda.wordpress.com/2010/10/27/gay-rights-in-uganda/

I say, let him come. He needs a good talking to and not by evangelicals. Communication is the best tool here. Let’s show him how wrong he is. This is where our elected officials step up to the plate and tell him how it is!

I wasn’t aware that the US granted visas to advocates of genocide. I would put him on the no fly list.
