President Yoweri Museveni has met the Parliamentary Legal Committee at State House Entebbe led by their Chairperson Robina Rwakoojo and agreed on the way forward as regards the Anti-Homosexuality Bill.
The Legal Committee will report to the August House on the Anti-Homosexuality Bill and communicate to the public later.
“I have met the Legal Committee of Parliament and we have agreed on the way forward which they are going to report to the bigger body on the Bill of Anti-Homosexuals. The Details will be communicated to the Public in due course,” President Museveni said.
The meeting was a follow-up of the ruling party’s resolution to send back the bill to parliament for improvement.
The decision was reached last Thursday during the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party parliamentary caucus summoned and chaired by President Museveni in Kampala.
At the event, the Members of Parliament and the party chairperson President Museveni agreed to cater for the rehabilitation of persons unwillingly recruited into same-sex practices, especially children.
The bill passed by parliament on March 21, 2023, calls for harsh penalties for anyone who engages in same-sex activity.
