Uganda’s “Kill The Gays” Bill May Be Voted On In February

Jim Burroway

December 20th, 2010

That’s according to an interview conducted by Grove City College professor Warren Throckmorton with Stephen Tashobya, the chair of the Ugandan Parliament’s Legal and Affairs committee last Friday. Tashobya said that he expects the bill to come up sometime after February 18, which is when Parliamentary elections will be held. He didn’t give a specific timetable, however:

Ideally, what we are trying to do is to ensure that we clear all the bills that are before the committee before the end of this Parliament in May. I am not in a position to say we are going to handle it in this time framework, but we are trying to get out all of the bills by the end of May, including that one [the Anti-Homosexuality Bill].

Warren has the details.
