Following Uganda’s private member’s bill for harsh punishments on gay people, Richard Branson called for a boycott of Uganda on his website.

“Ugandan MPs have passed a new law making homosexuality punishable by life imprisonment,” says Branson. “The law also means people who do not report gay people can be sent to prison. Uganda must reconsider or find it being ostracised by companies and tourists worldwide.”

Though he has been approached by government officials to do business in their country, Branson says it would go against his conscience to support a country that is perpetrating a witch hung against the gay community.

“Governments must realise that people should be able to love whoever they want.”
