Lawmakers are determined to bring back one of the most draconian laws in the world
Uganda’s anti-gay law could be returning as soon as next week.
A group of lawmakers have announced they will call for a motion, to reinstate the law, be passed in parliament on Tuesday (12 August).
The 165 members of parliament who have signed the petition are hoping a swift vote will undo a ruling last week by Uganda’s Constitutional Court that invalidated the Anti-Homosexuality Act.
The law punished homosexuality and the promotion of homosexuality with life in jail.
