Giles Muhame, the controversial editor of the Rolling Stone Magazine
Uganda, which outed murdered Ugandan Gay activist David Kato and other
gay men in Uganda by publishing their faces on the front cover of the
tabloid with a header “hang them,” reports to GAY USA the Blog that the
controversial Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009 will return to Parliament for
discussion, ending widely publicized speculation that a Cabinet
Sub-Committee had buried it. Proposed by Ndorwa West MP David Bahati,
the bill seeks to criminalize aggravated homosexuality with convicts
facing a death sentence.
Muhame wrote to Melanie Nathan of Gay USA reporting this news one hour ago, today:
Today, speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga is interested in saving the Bills from the 8th
Parliament. “The reports of the 8th parliament will be used as working
documents and the committees will re-handle the Bills, if the Parliament
agrees that we save them,” Kadaga said.
The motion to return the Bills was moved by Lt Col Sara Mpabwa today.
“I am moving a motion to save the Bills left un- debated by the Eighth
Parliament,” she said. One such Bill included the Anti-Homosexuality
Bill of 2009.
The motion was seconded by MP Crispus Ayena. Other Bills include:
Anti-Money Laundering Bill 2009, Narcotics Bill 2007, Regional
governments bill 2009, Transfer of convicted offenders Bill 2007 and
Geographical Bill 2006. Others are Government assurances Bill 2008,
Shuttles security Bill 2009, Companies bill 2009, Marriage and divorce
2009, Prohibition of torture Bill 2010, Plant protection & health
Bill l2010 among others.
“MP Sam Lyomoki had earlier said an amendment be included reading
‘any other Bills’ because there could be some others left behind by the
motion movers, and they are in the committees, ” notes Muhame. There was
some resistance from MP Abdu Katuntu who said Bills come to the House
through readings and are committed to the relevant committees.
