Voice of America: Straight Talk Africa: Question of the week: Is Uganda's Anti-Gay Bill a violation of human rights for homosexuals?
18 May 2011
Uganda's controversial anti-homosexuality bill has been postponed. The speaker of the Parliament adjourned parliament last Friday saying there was not enough time to start debate on the bill. The bill calls for mandatory death sentences for some homosexual acts and has drawn condemnation from the United States and various human rights groups.
Guest host Mwamoyo Hamza and his guests take a closer look at the human rights issues surrounding the Anti-Gay Bill being considered in Uganda.
