Uganda President Yoweri Museveni has defended his desire to ban oral sex in the country because of its negative health implications insisting those who engage in it will get worms.

This comes after he declared that the country wants to ban oral sex, telling media it was wrong because ‘the mouth is for eating’.

President Yoweri Museveni blamed ‘outsiders’ for trying to get people in Uganda to engage in oral sex, saying he wanted to make a public ‘warning’ about it.

His decision has sharply divided opinion in the country but it has now been revealed that the leader fears there could be a health epidemic because of the practice.

In 2014, after introducing the new anti-gay law, the president said those who engage in oral sex will get worms.

‘You push the mouth there, you can come back with worms and they enter your stomach because that is a wrong address,’ Museveni said.

President Yoweri Museveni blamed ‘outsiders’ for trying to get people in Uganda to engage in oral sex, saying he wanted to make a public ‘warning’ about it.

His latest speech he took aim at ‘wrong’ sexual practices as part of a campaign to criminalise them.

‘Let me take this opportunity to warn our people publicly about the wrong practices indulged in and promoted by some of the outsiders,’ he said.

‘One of them is what they call oral sex. The mouth is for eating, not for sex.

‘We know the address of sex, we know where sex is.’
