Julie Birungi Mutesasira, the ex-wife to Pastor Steven Mutesasira has revealed that she ran out of Uganda because she was gay [lesbian] and feared for her life.

She made the confession while with her two children Esther and Ezekiel Mutesasira at Canada’s Got Talent, where they auditioned for the third season.


“I decided to leave Uganda because I came out, because of my security. Being a gay woman in Uganda and married to a pastor, that’s an abomination,” Julie said in front of her kids.

In 2017, Julie divorced her husband and father of her two children, Pastor Steven Mutesasira, and left Uganda after she was accused of sleeping around with different men.

However, in 2020, Ugandans were shocked by the gospel singer’s changed lifestyle after social media was flooded with photos of her wedding to a fellow woman.

Currently based in Canada,the mother of Esther and Ezekiel, the 2019 winners of the first season of East Africa’s Got Talent, has been sharing pictures with her girlfriend, but some Ugandans never believed it.

However, with this revelations in front of her children and global TV audience, Ugandans will without any doubt do nothing but absorb the sour truth.
