Various news websites have picked up and reported a satirical website’s story that the Ugandan President’s daughter has come out as gay.

Abril Uno, a satire website from the US, last Wednesday published a spoof article which joked that Diana Kamuntu, Yoweri Musveni’s daughter, came out as gay in a radio interview.

“I am gay, I am homosexual. I have known this since I was a little girl,” the article quotes of Kamuntu.

In it, Abril Uno names real radio host James Kasirivu, as conducting the interview, and says that he “noticeably was in shock, and could not seemingly get words out of his mouth.”

The article was picked up by several websites including PointBlankNews, Codewit and countless others. While many have begun to take down the story, others remain, and some still credit Abril Uno for the story.
