Last week, for example, during a session at the Parliament, Pastor Ssempa came with a petition signed by more than 2 million people supporting the bill.
Ssempa also invited two witnesses, Paul Kagaba and George Oundo. They said that they had been saved by Ssempa after "being recruited" in the LGBT community by activists.
The New York Times reports however that "Mr. Oundo said that his presence alongside Mr. Ssempa at Parliament had been to ‘protect’ himself and that he had been contacted only that morning by Mr. Kagaba about the meeting and offered about $42 to attend"
"He said Mr. Ssempa had offered him about $2,000 in 2009 to repent and switch sides in the debate, but later reneged. Either way, Mr. Oundo became a poster-child for Mr. Ssempa’s anti-homosexuality movement."
Ssempa refused to give an explanation about the charges.
Truth Wins Out, a group of "ex-gay" survivor, asked the gouvernment to investigate the pastor Ssempa for perjury, extortion, and fraud.
