A petition asked United States Secretary of State John Kerry to revoke Sam Kutesa's visa and thereby keep him from assuming the role of the president of the United Nations.[1] The petition, which got over 15,000 signatures on Change.org, written by a Ugandan, Milton Allimadi, editor of Black Star News, highlighted Kutesa's support of the Ugandan anti-gay bill and allegations of corruption. In spite of protests and the petition, Sam Kutesa became the U.N. president of the sixty-ninth session.
