The Anti Homosexuality Bill (2009) is currently sitting at #7 on the list of Business to Follow.
It appears to be delayed as today is taken up with the government working out who to approach for money:
I) Request to borrow US $34,050,000 from the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) financing enhanced national food security through increased rice production project.
II) Request to borrow US $12,000,000 from the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA) and another US $15,000,000 from the Opec Fund for International Development (OFID) to finance the Masaka – Bukakata road project.
III) Request to borrow up to US $9.75 million from the Islamic Development (IDB) to support the scaling up and replication of Millenium Villages Project (MVP) in Uganda.
All of this whilst Keith Muhakanizi, Deputy Secretary to the Treasury, is explaining how the Kill the Gays Bill is damaging Uganda's economy:
“I have never seen a country like this where politicians hurt the economy instead of building it.”
Any bank would be rather foolish to invest in a country that is deliberately damaging its own economy to pursue a bill which flies in the face of human rights.
We urge you to point this out to both the Islamic Development Bank, Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa, and OPEC Fund for International Development. Even if they don't agree on human rights grounds, they should at least have enough economic sense to show concern. Not least the level of corruption occurring in Uganda.
