Uganda Police shuts down a Gay Pride Parade in two locations in Entebbe on 09/24/2016. This followed after a raid on a Pride event in early August 2016, the Ugandan government threatened to round up activists who take part in the event in a statement issued by a government minister Simon Lukodo claiming that all gay events are illegal in Uganda.
More than 100 LGBT people turned up for the parade at a beach in Entebbe on Lake Victoria were arrested in their buses and escorted by the police to Kampala to be locked up, which made a gay man to jump off a moving bus, sustaining injuries.
Minutes later all LGBT persons and their buses were later set free.
The LGBTI people later concluded their day at a private place to celebrate their Pride against all odds.
