Ugandan President Promises to Veto Antigay Bill

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni told the U.S. Department of State he would work to prevent a proposed antigay bill from becoming law in his country and he would veto the controversial legislation should it come to his desk, DC Agenda reports.

The proposed law would make acts of homosexuality punishable by life imprisonment and even death for “repeat offenders” of homosexual activities and HIV-positive LGBT people.

According to the article, State Department spokesperson Jon Tollefson said Museveni gave Johnnie Carson, the U.S. assistant secretary of state for African affairs, assurances during an October 24 meeting.

“The assistant secretary… expects President Museveni to live up to his reputation as a leader in the HIV/AIDS struggle in Africa,” Tollefson said.
