Uganda’s constitutional court led by Deputy Chief Justice Richard Butera unanimously declined to nullify the Anti-Homosexuality Act 2023 following a petition by Andrew Mwenda and 10 others who sought prayers to have the law quashed.

Following a court session on 18th December 2023, the constitutional delivered their judgement yesterday and the outcome wasn’t good news to the petitioners who came out fuming and vowed to appeal to the supreme court in their bid to uphold the rights of homosexuals in Uganda.

In the wake of the signing of the bill into by president Museveni on 26th May 2023, Western Powers especially the US threatened that Uganda will face several consequences including but not limited to sanctions, withdraw of funding to several key Museveni sectors in Education, Health, Defense, Democracy among others.

Before 2023 came to an end, several legislators are now not able to get visas to the US, prisons boss Dr Johnson Byabashaija was sanctioned by the US in December last year. The more painful to Museveni’s extravagant government was World Bank’s decision to suspend funding to Uganda, America also struck Uganda off the beneficiaries of it’s lucrative AGOA trade forum due to the Anti-Homosexuality Act 2023.

Now following the Constitutional Court decision in the judgement read by Deputy Chief Justice Richard Butera, America’s Secretary has spelt doom for Uganda’s public health, international reputation and foreign investment. He says the new law undermines Uganda’s ability to agitate for investments at the international stage.
