Uganda update

GayUganda had a conversation in email with a Ugandan legislator; you can imagine how it went. NGO News Africa has an interview with the leader of the official opposition in parliament, who says the bill will pass unanimously.

Meanwhile, in neighbouring Rwanda, which has been considering similar action, the outrage over Uganda's actions has had an impact, with Minister of Justice Tharcisse Karugarama condemning the idea of criminalisation in Rwanda.

Finally, Gay Uganda has the text of the bill, which is at last an official public document. It of course maintains the death penalty.
