Uganda has struck down one of the most draconian anti-gay laws in the world.
The law, which was overturned by the Constitutional Court moments ago (1 August), punished homosexuality with life in prison.
Petitioners called on the court to find that parliament passed the law without following proper procedure.
House Speaker Rebecca Kadaga ignored a quorum call by Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi when she moved the bill for a vote on 20 December. Without a quorum, the petitioners argue, the bill was not lawfully passed.
