Ugandan Journalist Omusawo Tintah Finds Refuge and Community in Canada


Former renowned Ugandan journalist Male Deogratius, known as Omusawo Tintah, has reportedly joined the LGBTQ community in Canada. He fled Uganda in early May to seek asylum after enduring a harrowing attack and subsequent threats.

Earlier this week, Male Deogratius was seen in high spirits as he was welcomed by Julie Mutesasira, a prominent self-confessed lesbian, former pastor’s wife, and singer from Uganda who also relocated to Canada.

Sources suggest that Male was officially welcomed into the gay community by Julie Mutesasira. However, it remains unclear whether he is solely advocating for LGBTQ rights or if he also identifies as part of the community.

Male’s escape to Canada followed a brutal assault by unidentified assailants near his residence on Salama Road, Kubadongo, Makindye Division Council, Kampala, on the night of April 15, 2024. He was promptly taken to Good Samaritan Clinic in Makindye for medical treatment.

Fearing for his life after receiving warnings from his attackers to cease his advocacy work, particularly regarding human rights and LGBTQ rights on his platform, “,” Male left Uganda for the safety of Canada.
