"Uganda Parliament Vows To ‘Push’ ‘Kill Gays’ Bill"

Members of the Ugandan Parliament are responding angrily to reports that the country’s cabinet — bowing to international pressure — has thrown out the controversial “Kill Gays” legislation and is now vowing to push it through through the legislature. “Members of Parliament yesterday accused Cabinet of bowing to pressure and described the Executive’s decision to block the gays Bill as ‘moral corruption’. Ndorwa West MP David Bahati, the architect of the Bill, says Cabinet cannot throw out his Bill because it is now property of Parliament and insists that he is going to push for it.”
