MP Bahati’s Security Tightened geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 200%;”>The legislator is currently seen guarded by a heavily armed and very muscular police guard.

During the Ndorwa West constituency NRM consultative meetings aimed at selling President Yoweri Museveni’s sole candidature in the next presidential elections, Bahati had his guard moving at a close pace and barring people from getting nearer to the legislator.

Analysts say the government could have tightened the legislator’s security to protect his life from wrong elements who would want to use sophisticated terror machines to harm him.

They argue that since Bahati attracted the international attention following the passing of his critical private member’s bill aka Anti-Gay Bill into law, many would want him dead.

Hon. Bahati came to international limelight in October 2009 after introducing Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill, proposing that a new offense be created in named aggravated homosexuality which would be punishable as a capital offense.


Bahati received criticism across the globe including Uganda’s Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi, who quoted the penal code Cap.120. 145 (a,b) saying, the country had laws for unnatural offenses which included homosexuality thus there was only a need to amend it.

Bahati has always been strained from visiting some European countries and has come out to testify how he has always survived being harmed by supporters of homosexuals.

There is still fear that the intended harm has not yet passed hence the need for tight security.
