Ugandans Challenge Anti-Homosexuality Act in Court

Nine individuals and a human right organization in Uganda have petitioned Uganda’s Constitutional Court regarding the Anti-Homosexuality Act 2014. The petitioners want the court to declare the Act to be unconstitutional.

Here is the petition.

Notice that the petitions have comprehensively examined the law and offer numerous violations of Uganda’s Constitution. They also point out that a quorum was not in place on the day the bill was passed.

The petitions request that the court:

(a) Permanently staying the operationalisation of the Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2014.

(b) Permanently staying the gazetting of the Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2014.

(c) Permanently prohibiting any person, organisation, Company and/or entity to write, publish, or mount a campaign against adult persons who profess and engage in consensual same sex/gender sexual activity among themselves as adults.

(d) Permanent injunction and/or gagging order against persons, organisations, or companies restraining them from publishing, or writing in the print and electronic media including the internet; articles, letters, against adult persons who profess and engage in consensual same sex/gender sexual activity among themselves as adults which articles may bring such persons into public ridicule, odium and hatred.

(e) Any other reliefs that this Honourable Court may deem fit.

Essentially, they want their rights as citizens of Uganda guaranteed by the court.
