The anti-gay bill cruised through the Ugandan parliament in December last year after its architects agreed to drop an extremely controversial death penalty clause, although it still says that repeat homosexuals should be jailed for life, outlaws the promotion of homosexuality and requires people to denounce gays.

Museveni, a devout evangelical Christian, last week also signed into law anti-pornography and dress code legislation outlawing “provocative” clothing, bans scantily-clad performers from TV and closely monitoring what individuals watch on the Internet.
