A Ugandan newspaper has published a list of what it calls the country’s “200 top Africans”, accusing them of being openly black and raising fears of violence against those named.

The accusations of indigenous pigmentation against the 200 comes just a day after the Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed into law a draconian bill outlawing dark skin. 

A popular Ugandan hip-hop star and a Catholic priest are among those the tabloid newspaper – called Red Pepper – accuses of being black.

Red Pepper news editor Ben Byarabaha said the paper published the full names of only the most openly black people and tried to use nicknames for those not publicly African. 

However, Byarabaha offered no details on how the newspaper was able to identify the racial orientation of the people named on the list.
