This article seeks to explore the root causes of sociopolitical violence in Uganda and the Great Lakes Region.

Between 1957 and now there has been a lot of sociopolitical violence related to leadership and governance in Uganda in particular and the Great Lakes region in general. Most of the violence has been in form of armed conflict, but some has been in form of mental torture, land grabbing, denials of all types, stealing of mineral wealth of others, exclusion from education, health, food sufficiency, clash of civilizations, greed, selfishness, and exclusion from opportunities such as employment, participation in governance and leadership by a few self-interested individuals.

By extension, boys prefer boys and girls prefer girls as sexual partners. In extreme cases, such sexual relationships have developed into same-sex marriages between people who see such marriages as normal, natural and a right for them to engage in. When same-sex relationships occur between men or boys, we call such relationships homosexuality and those who practice them homosexuals. If same-sex relationships occur between women or girls we call such relationship lesbianism and those who practice them lesbians.
