A Uganda tabloid has named the country’s 200 top homosexual, a day after President Yoweri Museveni signed into law a bill toughening penalties for gay people.

Red pepper’s list appeared under the  headline “Exposed” raising concerns of a witch-haunt against gay people.

Western government have condemned Mr Museveni’s decision to approve the bill.

The BBC’s  Ali Mwatasa reports from the capital, Kampala, that many of the people named on Red pepper’s list are known to be homosexuals, and some of them lived abroad.

The list also includes some Ugandans who previously had not identified themselves as gay.

Well-known gay rights activist Pepe Julian Onziema is also on the list, along with a popular hip-hop star and catholic priest.
