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