EU to Meet With Kutesa

Well, today should be interesting:

Ugandan officials said the country’s foreign minister, Sam Kutesa, would be meeting on Friday with the head of the EU delegation in Uganda, Kristian Schmidt. 
“It is a dialogue between the European Union and the Uganda government on the anti-homosexuality Law,” Uganda’s Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman, Fred Opolot, told AFP.

Sam Kutesa, in case you didn't know, is the current Foreign Affairs Minister who resigned in 2011 over corruption allegations.

The government allegedly lost some $150m (£95m) in various scams during the 2007 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (Chogm) in the capital, Kampala, reports say. - BBC

Along with MP Yokasi Bwambale's conviction for theft, this led to the UK suspending aid in November 2012.
