Is Uganda’s President Museveni The One Pushing to Eliminate the Death Penalty Provision?


“Likely to be removed” is how the Canadian Press is describing the death penalty sentencing in Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill. The move comes as President Yoweri Museveni is expressing concern that executing gays is, in fact, too harsh a penalty, and he’s “encouraged his ruling National Resistance Movement Party to overturn the death sentence provision, which would apply to sexually active gays living with HIV or in cases of same-sex rape.” The life imprisonment aspect? Yeah, still in there. Scott Lively will be so pleased.
