Sheila Naturinda Parliament A new law on homosexuality currently on the table of Parliament, could see some people jailed for life, Daily Monitor has learnt. Moved by Ndorwa East MP David Bahati, and seconded by Obua Benson Ogwal [Moroto], the Bill seeks to prohibit any form of sexual relations between same sex people, and also to strengthen the nations capacity to deal with emerging internal and external threats to a heterosexual family. Some of the salient features in the Bill include having an extra territorial jurisdiction for a person who, while being a citizen of or permanently residing in Uganda, commits the offence under the law. Aiding and abetting homosexuality, conspiracy to engage in the act, procuring homosexuality by threats and detention with intent to commit homosexuality is an offence under the law. A person who keeps a house, or a place of any kind for purposes of homosexuality commits an offence and is liable on conviction to imprisonment for seven years, states the Bill.
