Former Oxfam Executive Director also wife to former presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye has condemned the gross increased violation of gay rights in Uganda calling it so shameful.

In a brief statement posted on her official twitter handle, Byanyima stated that gay Ugandans have equal rights like all other Ugandans, adding that assaulting them is cruel and inhuman.

Winnie Byanyima says such acts contradicts everything that our religious, culture and traditions that teach us.

She called for authorities to intervene and make sure gay rights are observed.
