Uganda’s government is battling to stop a legal challenge that could threaten the new anti-gay law.
A number of gay rights activists and politicians believe the Anti-Homosexuality Act contravenes the Constitution and deserves to be repealed.
But the government has denied the activists’ claims and want the Constitutional Court to throw out the case.
‘When the rant of gay activists is done, the world will move on,’ a government spokesman Ofwondo Opondo has said.
‘Those opposed to anti-gay bill should read article 91 Uganda constitution.’
