Conflicting signals from Uganda about the Anti-Homosexuality Bill

If yesterday was yang, then I guess today is yin.

The foreign minister said today that the Anti-Homosexuality is alive and waiting for more discussion. This from Voice of America:

The Ugandan foreign minister denies the government is backing away from proposed anti-gay legislation because of foreign policy implications, saying the government is still discussing its position on the issue.  Gay rights activists express caution over reports the president has backed away from the bill.

I suspect many such reports will emerge from Uganda.

Meanwhile, Oregon Senator Wyden suggested that the AHB could place Uganda in violation of US trade law.

  1. If you read articles on politics coming out of Uganda, it seems that Museveni is taking a real hit over this bill. There was another in the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), Kizza Besigye, who is gaining ground as National Resistance Movement’s Yoweri Museveni slips, according to a snap poll conducted by The Red Pepper, Editorial Department. If you want to believe anything the Red Pepper writes….

    4% movement since 2006 isn’t much normally, but against Museveni it might be significant.
