And Here It Ends - For Now

jubilant at the news.

We are taking a break at Kill the Bill in light of Ugandan court overturns anti-gay law that halted Western aid today. 

The new ruling, which can be appealed, voids a statute signed into law by the president in February and which had broad support in the religiously conservative east African nation.

Ugandan MPs are sure to move to reintroduce the bill, this time in such a way that it cannot be thrown out on a technicality, but for now we take a deep breath and smile.
