Uganda Parliament | Anti- Homosexuality Bill Watch

No Anti-Homosexuality Bill today | bracing for next week

Melanie Nathan, November 20 2012

I am happy to report that for today, Uganda ‘s Parliament seems to have a lot more important business to attend to than the vicious and redundant Anit-homosexuality Bill which Speaker Rebecca Kadaga promised to have passed  in time for Christmas as a gift to the Ugandan people.

Today is Tuesday Nov 20, 2012 and it is the day we were led to believe would be the time by which  Speaker Kadaga would have the required second reading of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill.

Below is the agenda for Uganda’s Parliament for November 20, 2012 and there was no second reading of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill.    We will continue to keep an eye. In the meantime the world is aghast that this Bill may be a reality and we have heard that there is a chance it will be up for a second reading next week.

Ugandan LGBTI activists have urged that the international public approach their protests and activism with caution at this time. See Ugandan LGBT Coalition urges extreme caution when foriegners advocate against the Anti-Homosexuality Bill

Here is the Order paper for Nov 20 2012.
