Uganda Antigay Law

Uganda has affirmed its stand on the Anti Gay Law despite the cut of aid from various nations.

Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesperson, Mr Fred Opolot has on Wednesday told KFM radio that Uganda will remains firm on its position.

He said what is needed is to build capacity for self-sustenance.

This comes after the Barack Obama administration announced that it would take four key steps against Uganda due to this law.

It cut funding worth Shs.16 billion and Shs.7 billion to the religious council and tourism sector respectively.

It also said the United States will suspend the planned study between the Centers for Disease Control and Uganda University designed to identify groups most at risk for HIV/AIDS.

Last month, President Yoweri Museveni signed a controversial anti-gay bill into law which calls for the death penalty for homosexual acts.

However, some world leaders, gay rights activists have since then been criticised the Ugandan government for signing the law saying it is against human rights.
