The Anglican bishop of West Buganda diocese, Godfrey Makumbi, has said there are more pressing issues in the country than homosexuality which is getting all the limelight nowadays.
The bishop said there are bigger issues that should be tackled urgently.
"I also don't condone it, but sincerely it is overshadowing other problems ... Our prime problems are on everyone's fingertips; corruption, dishonesty, impudence and impunity, human [child] sacrifice, poor service delivery and absolute poverty," he said.
Speaking at his diocesan offices in Kako recently, Makumbi revealed he had ignored the issue in his sermon because very few people in his jurisdiction even know it.
"Realistically this is not in our culture, because our African sexual values are completely heterosexual, I personally have never seen people fancying it here, except in Europe," Makumbi said.
He revealed that as a teacher who has served for many years, he has not encountered homosexuality in any of his schools. But he had no kind words for those implicated in embezzlement.
"The country is fed up of self-seeking and disillusioned people who cause suffering to others. The scams engineered by a few selfish and greedy people are a shame to this nation," he said.
