Bill Will Pass by 2013

Rebecca Kadaga
Speaker of Parliament

Disturbing development:

The Speaker of Uganda’s Parliament says the country’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill will be passed by lawmakers before the end of this year.

In the past few weeks, Speaker Rebecca Kadaga has repeatedly suggested that Uganda’s MPs will finally get a chance to vote on the legislation.

The bill was first introduced in 2009 by MP David Bahati, but has yet to gain parliamentary approval.

A second article explains:
Referring to the law as a "Christmas gift" to the population, she spoke of "the serious threat" posed by homosexuals.

‘Aggravated homosexuality’ is defined as gay acts committed by parents or authority figures, HIV-positive people, paedophiles and repeat offenders. If convicted, they will face the death penalty.

We predict Santa will be delivering her a course of counselling this year.

If you'd like to let Kadaga know how you feel about this, her parlimentary e-mail address is: and you can find her on Twitter and Facebook

Try to keep it civil, even if she can't.
