Parliament has passed the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, 2009, which proposes life imprisonment for homosexual acts.
A proposal for a 14-year-sentence for those convicted for homosexual acts, which the bill criminalises, was rejected by Members of Parliament who instead maintained the life imprisonment proposal.
However, Prime minister Amama Mbabazi said there would be further “consultations” on part of the government.
The Bill will be sent to President Yoweri Museveni, who will decide if it becomes law or not.
