In Three Days The Unthinkable Coud Happen!
The Ugandan Parliament Could and Probably Will Pass The "KILL THE GAYS BILL!"
Rebecca Kadaga has requested the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee bring the bill, known as ‘Kill The Gays’, to the floor imminently, the Monitor reports.
The speaker advised the Ugandan committee to remember the high demand of the public to address the virus of homo...sexuality in the African country.
‘I write to reiterate my earlier instruction to your committee to expeditiously handle the review of the report on the Bill,’ Kadaga said in her letter, The Monitor reports.
‘As you are aware, there is high demand by the population to address the escalating problem of promoting and recruiting minors into homosexuality.’
‘This is therefore to inform you that I shall place the Bill on the Order Paper immediately after conclusion of the Oil Bills,’ she added.
Before the Uganda parliament breaks off for Christmas recess on 15 December, the House must conclude its consideration of a Petroleum Bill.
After the fuel bill is completed, MPs are expected to debate and then pass the Anti-Homosexuality Bill.
At a meeting with Christian and Muslim leaders and supporters, Kadaga said the parliament would pass the law as a ‘Christmas gift’.
The Anti-Homosexuality Bill’s text available in the public domain states gay people will be jailed for the ‘offence of homosexuality’, and face death for ‘aggravated homosexuality’.
However, Ugandan sources are suggesting the death penalty may be dropped in the final version of the bill.
Several European countries have previously said they would stop providing aid if the law was enforced, urging Uganda to rethink the bill.
Speaking to Gay Star News, UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office said even though they had raised their concerns about the bill at the most senior levels, they could not confirm what they would do until
after the law is officially adopted.
According to a 2010 survey by The Pew Research Center, homosexuality is morally unacceptable to 89% of Ugandans.
James Nsaba Buturo, the former ethics minister and a coalition leader, says the measure’s widespread popularity will speed its approval.
“I can tell you it has 99 percent chance. It will pass. No question about it," Buturo said. "If there was any leader in this country who sympathizes with homosexuality, he will not say it in public. Because he knows that Ugandans, by and large, do not support that way of life.”
