Good evening, news coming in indicate that President Museveni has declined to sign the contentious Anti-Homosexuality Bill which was passed by parliament last month in a bid to curb the spread and promotion of homosexuality which has been on the rise in the country.
President Museveni invited his NRM members of parliament together with those who are independents but working with NRM, after his Keynote address, Members of parliament resolved in unison that the bill is sent back to parliament for improvement.
President Museveni has been under intense pressure not to sign this bill into law as his western donors said it would be a bad law that will infringe on the rights of Ugandans and also water down efforts of fighting HIV/AIDs in Uganda.

By the time of publishing this article it had been established which particular sections of the bill need to be improved. It remains unclear why president Museveni never met his NRM members of parliament before passing this bill and only waited for it to be passed to suggest the improvements.
The resolutions have been announced by the party’s director of communication Emmanuel Dombo Lumala via his social media platforms.
This is the second time the bill is suffering such set backs since 2014 and it’s not clear if it will ever become law.
This is a developing story…
