Ugandan official says new bill will target homosexuals

A bill proposing harsh penalties against gay sex is set to be introduced in Uganda's national assembly, according to a senior official who has expressed regret over the failure of an attempt years ago to punish homosexuals.

Lawmakers supporting anti-gay legislation have "remobilized" so that a draft new bill gets strong support when it is put to a vote, the state minister for ethics, Simon Lokodo, told local broadcaster NTV on Thursday.

While Uganda's penal code "only criminalizes the act," the East African country needs legislation against "recruitment, promotion, exhibition" activities related to gay rights, he said.
