Emergency Request for Office Relocation of Spectrum Uganda Initiatives Inc. 

An emergency request from a long standing Other Sheep friend and highly recognized organization in Uganda 

Tuesday, July 2, 2013 


Spectrum Uganda Initiative Incorporated


A memo from

Rev. Steve Parelli,

Executive Director

Other Sheep

Lima, Peru

July 2, 2013


Kizza Samuel Ganafa, the Executive Director of Spectrum Uganda, is a personal friend of Other Sheep since 2008.  Ganafa has worked with Other Sheep in meetings in Uganda in 2008 and 2012.  Ganafa has meet with me at ILGA meetings (Internal Lesbian and Gay Association) in Geneva and Austria.  Ganafa is a recognized leader in Uganda human rights activism for LGBT people. 


I believe this email from Ganafa is genuine, and not a spam from someone personating himself/herself as Ganafa. However, I have not at this time made cross references other than to note that the personal email address associated with Ganafa is the email address I always use to contact him.


Whenever making a contribution through email contacts, always take necessary steps to verify the source of the email.


I would recommend contacting

Alfred Ssekabanja and

Christopher Ssenyonjo to help with verifying the situation.


Unfortunately, Jose Ortiz and I are abroad for two months and because of time constraints we are, at this time, only able to assist by passing along Ganafa's emergency notice.

1st July 2013




Spectrum Uganda initiatives Inc is under serious threats from traders and hooligans around Kiseka Market.


During traders' strike on 28th June 2013 angry traders turned their wrath on Spectrum offices and staff accusing us of promoting homosexuality and promised to come back soon and attack our office and staff , that they are aware of our activities.


A group of around six energetic young men today, the 1st of July 2013, has again raised their anger and shouted at our offices that they cannot share premises with homosexuals. They continued to shout at Spectrum staff that if police have failed to act by closing our offices they will act themselves.


The neighboring tenants have also constantly questioned our activities and clients after media outing of the organization in the Red Pepper dated 24th February 2013 titled "BUSTED - HOW GAYS OPERATE IN UGANDA" where Spectrum was alleged as a recruiting agency for homosexuals in Uganda and some staff of Spectrum were outted. This alerted the tenants and the landlord.


Following an urgent meeting held today of Spectrum Uganda executive, we have decided to immediately find means of relocating to a safer place and evoke on our security plan.


Spectrum Uganda Initiatives Incorporated is located on Mukwano mall which is in the City Centre very close to the infamous Kisekka Market where strikes and demonstrations originate from.


Spectrum Uganda Initiatives Inc requests for your assistance to relocate to a safer place and protection of its staff to continue serving the Community.
