The Dallas Voice is reporting that the Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni’s hotel accommodation has been cancelled by The Four Seasons hotel. It is believed the cancellation occurred because of Museveni’s stance against gays and the possibility of planned protests.
Museveni is scheduled to be in Texas this weekend of the 21st to speak in Irving at the local Convention Center, according to Dallas Voice.
“Museveni is in Dallas to promote tourism and look for investors in his country’s oil and gas industry,” the site said in a post this week, and ExxonMobil’s world headquarters are nearby.
Museveni is currently negotiating with the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine to host his stay. No word yet whether that hotel will accommodate him or how Grapevine police plan to protect him with little notice.
Museveni was recently greeted in the White House despite President Obama’s grievance with the signing of Anti-Homosexuality situation by Museveni and promises of sanctions against human rights abusers.
