Uganda's Parliament will revisit a bill that sent shockwaves around the world, proposing jailing and possibly executing gay Ugandans.
Parliament Speaker Rebecca Kadaga said a committee will weigh whether to bring the bill to a full vote, Bloomberg News reported Tuesday. The Anti-Homosexuality Bill was introduced by Ugandan lawmaker David Bahati in October 2009. The bill could mandate the death penalty or life in prison for people who are identified as gay, or caught engaging in homosexual acts.
