Uganda’s Parliament May Consider the Anti-Homosexuality Bill Before the End of 2012

According to committee chair Stephen Tashobya, his committee report on the Anti-Homosexuality Bill is almost complete. From Uganda’s Daily Monitor:

Parliament yesterday passed a resolution in recognition of Speaker Rebecca Kadaga’s stand on homosexuality. The House also urged the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs committee to immediately table its report on the Bill for general debate.

The committee’s chairperson Steven Tashobya yesterday said their report is almost done and will be brought to Parliament before it breaks off for Christmas recess. MPs across the political divide in a plenary session chaired by Ms Kadaga denounced homosexuality and said the country’s moral values are threatened by cultural inventions from the western world.

If the committee report this time is like the last one, there are very few significant changes in the anti-gay bill with the death penalty remaining in the bill. See this post for more on the committee report on the bill.
