Kanye West meets with Uganda’s anti-gay dictator – who also loves Trump

Kanye West Presents Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni With A Pair of White Yeezy Sneakers

Just days after his insane live TV meeting with President Donald Trump, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian traveled to Uganda and met with its anti-gay dictator, President Yoweri Museveni.

The famous American couple on Monday presented him with a pair of the rapper’s sneakers.

“The couple took in a meeting with the president of Uganda, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who has declared his love for Trump, and Museveni’s daughter Diana Museveni Kamuntu in Entebbe on Monday. West is visiting the East African country while recording his upcoming album,” HuffPost reports.

In 2014, after years of legislative threats and international condemnation, Museveni signed a version of the “Kill the Gays” bill into law.

The bill originally called for the death penalty for homosexuality, and in its final form even mandated that LGBT Ugandan citizens who left the country be extradited back to Uganda to face punishment. (Uganda’s Supreme Court later overturned the bill on procedural grounds.)

West and Kardashian “jetted to Uganda over the weekend with their five-year-old daughter North for a vacation in one of the country’s national parks,” The Daily Mailreported.

They apparently arrived Saturday.
