By Melanie Nathan, Feb .07, 2013.

Screen Shot 2013-02-07 at 2.28.36 AMAs reported yesterday, Uganda’s Parliament has returned from recess and on this the third day, of its second session of the 9th Parliament,  the Anti-homosexuality has moved up since yesterday from Number 8 to number 6 on the Order Papers (Agenda).  The Bill,  commonly known as The Kill the Gays Bill, which was at number 1 spot last year, was not passed last year as promised by Speaker Rebecca Kadaga, and is due for its second debate when heard in parliament.

President Museveni does not have veto power of this Private member bill which was first introduced by PM David Bahati back in 2009. The Bill presently carries the death penalty in cases of so called “aggravated homosexuality.” It also carries stiff prison sentences for gays and lesbians, for so called “promotion” of homosexuality and for failure to report a known homosexual within 24 hours.

This the  3RD SITTING OF THE 3RD MEETING OF THE 2ND SESSION OF THE 9TH PARLIAMENT OF UGANDA:  THURSDAY 7TH FEBRUARY 2013 – TIME OF COMMENCEMENT 2.00 P.M.
