Uganda proposes stiffer penalties for same-sex offenders

Uganda’s President, Yoweri Museveni has called for an investigation into
homosexuality as lawmakers prepare to vote on an anti-LGBT bill.

The bill, introduced earlier this month, proposes tough new penalties for
same-sex relations, sparking criticism from human rights groups.

Under the proposed law, anyone who engages in same-sex activity or who
identifies as LGBTQ could face up to ten years’ imprisonment.
