Ugandan dictator Yoweri Museveni is meeting with investors and supporters in Allen after being run out of Irving and Grapevine.
Ugandan nationals will be protesting his presence on Saturday and Sunday. Museveni will be at 1415 Stinson Road, Allen, 75002 on Sunday, Sept. 21 3-9 p.m. Protesters should arrive before 3 p.m. to greet his arrival.
After Dallas Voice reported that the dictator would be in Irving, the Four Seasons hotel in Las Colinas canceled his reservation. Museveni is known for sponsoring the “kill the gays” bill and is trying to get it through the Parliament again after it was declared unconstitutional on a technicality in August. The Irving Convention Center also canceled the meetings that were to be held there when the Ugandan embassy didn’t return paperwork by Wednesday, Sept. 17.
The entourage tried to move the event and reservations to the Gaylord Hotel in Grapevine. That hotel also denied him accommodations and meeting rooms. A spokeswoman for the hotel said they were already heavily booked for the weekend and could not provide the security a head of state would require. The Ugandan embassy, however, sent out the incorrect information that they would be meeting in Grapevine at the hotel.
