Ugandan Parliament Adjourns Without passing the Anti-Gay Bill

14 DEC 2012.

Today after positioning at No. 7 on the Ugandan Parliament Order Papers, the Anti-Homosexuality Bill has failed to see passage in the Ugandan Parliament.  Speaker Rebecca Kadaga had promised to deliver the Bill by Xmas as an insidious gift to Ugandans.  Her efforts may have been thwarted by the contentious OIL Bill, The Accountants Bill and a trip to the Vatican that seemed to take her Xmas focus in a different direction. Parliament is now going to resume on February 4, 2013 and it is highly likely that the Bill, also known as The Kill the Gays Bil, will reappear on the Agenda at that time.  Accordingly protests and actions against the Bill should not cease, we should intensify the fight from today.
