Speaker Kadaga

Spearker of Parliament, Rebbeca Kadaga has said there is no will among Ugandans to fight homosexuality both among population and legislators.

The Homosexuality Bill, which was introduced by MP David Bahati in 2009 called for the criminalization of sexual acts between members of the same sex.

The bill was controversially passed by Parliament, was assented to by the President but was challenged in court by a section of human rights activists and has since been outlawed.

“It did not pass because of the technicalities, the substance has not died. It depends on the movers to resurrect the matter,” she said.

Ms Kadaga who is seeking another elective term in the office of the Speaker was appearing on Capital FM signature talk show, The Capital Gang.

“I delivered the law, it enacted before Christmas. It is not the work of the speaker to pass a law and implement it.”

The Kamuli Woman Member of Parliament has been a proponent of the Anti-homosexuality law and at one point promised to deliver it to Ugandans as a Christmas gift.

Her views on homosexuality came out when she clashed with the Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister, John Baird, during the inter parliamentary union assembly in Quebec in 2012.

She accused him of disrespecting the sovereignty of Uganda by pushing the pro-gay agenda.

On the talk show, she promised to give the bill a chance in case it is brought back.

“If the movers bring it back for first reading, it will be back,” she said.
