"Our action has been prompted by a series of developments on this matter in recent months. We have decided that we can no longer stand by doing nothing, and watch when our families, children, cultural and religious values, as well as our sovereignty as a nation, are under serious threat from homosexuality," Langa said.

"Therefore, in the light of the existential threat that homosexuality poses to our motherland Uganda, we are calling on all Ugandans from all walks of life to stand united and conduct a countrywide million-member peaceful march as a way of expressing our voice and position on this matter, for the survival of our nation and future generations."
