As well as being condemned by rights campaigners and health professionals for agreeing to sign the Bahati Bill, President Museveni has also garnered the disappointment of US President Obama:
The new law “will complicate our valued relationship with Uganda,” Obama said.
He did not threaten any reprisals against Uganda, though some have urged him to do so. “It’s complicated” isn’t an adequate response, one activist remarked.
Yup, but then Obama has been incredibly quiet on this issue from the off, referring to it as simply 'odiouse' whilst sitting down to breakfast with lead US gay-hate group The Family.
Let's see whether Obama can manage to be a little less disappointing on this issue.
