Uganda’s Daily Monitor reports that Rebecca Kadaga made the statement last week after returning to Uganda following an international summit in Canada.
She told reporters at Entebbe International Airport that she would stand firm against homosexuality.
“They said I should stop the debate on the anti-homosexuality bill, but I assured them there is no way I can block a private members bill,” she said.
PinkNews reports that a group of anti-gay religious leaders were there to meet with her at the airport, along with the bill’s architect, MP David Bahati.
Bahati had proposed for his legislation to include the death penalty for certain cases of “aggravated homosexuality”.
In February this year it was reported that life imprisonment would replace the death penalty in the bill.
Say Calam...do you reckon that Peter Jensen fella... in his role as secretary, and what seems to be media guru for GAFCON, will release a statement like Rick Warren did ...condemning the persecution of Ugandan gays?
Watch it Bill...Calam's drinking...she'll choke if you encourage her to laugh and drink at the same time!
