L'actu - - MONDE - With AP

Uganda’s pre­sident on Mon­day si­gned a contro­ver­sial an­ti-gay bill that has harsh pe­nal­ties for ho­mo­sexual sex, saying it is nee­ded to de­ter what he cal­led the West’s “so­cial im­pe­ria­lism” pro­mo­ting ho­mo­sexua­li­ty in Afri­ca. The new law calls for first­time of­fen­ders to be sen­ten­ced to 14 years in jail.
