Via New Vision, very bad news for public health in general and HIV/AIDS in particular: Museveni to assent the Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Bill into law - Spokesman. Excerpt:
President Yoweri Museveni has told NRM MPs he will assent the Anti-Homosexuality Bill into law, Uganda's government spokesman Ofwono Opondo has revealed.
A press release from NRM Caucus Spokes person Anite Evelyn also confirmed the development.
In a twitter message, Ofwono said Museveni would give the nod to the bill "after 14 medical experts presented a report that homosexuality is not genetic but a social behaviour."
A Ministerial Committee comprising of scientists from Ministry of Health and Makerere University was set up to study homosexuality and genetics in human beings and advise the President and the NRM Caucus on the subject of homosexuality.
He added that "Ugandan traditionalists, religious leaders & politicians have been urging Museveni to sign the Bill. (Those) Supporting homosexuals take it easy Uganda is a sovereign country, you challange the law in the courts."
"The NRM caucus has welcomed the development as a measure to protect Ugandans from social deviants," Opondo added on twitter.
