Ugandans appeal to Constitutional Court to crash Anti Homosexuality Law 2023


The Anti Homosexuality Law, which was passed and approved by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni Tibuhaburwa of Uganda, marked the ultimate downfall for the LGBTIQ+ community in Uganda. Prepare yourself for the upcoming decision of the Uganda Constitutional Court on December 18, 2026 on the  same and could reverse every thing. This is the tentative date set for the trial concerning the Uganda Anti Homosexuality Law.

The group of Human Rights Lawyers and petitioners, including Counsel Nicolas Opiyo, Hon Fox Odoi, and Dr. Frank Mugisha, among others, expressed their joy and excitement upon receiving the news that the hearing for their petition has been scheduled.

During conversations with both local and international media, Dr. Frank Mugisha emphasized that this law, known as the Anti Homosexuality Law, has placed numerous LGBTQ+ individuals at risk and inflicted immense suffering and violence upon them. Many have been forced to leave the country to ensure their personal safety. Therefore, there is an urgent need to expedite the legal process and repeal this law in order to uphold and safeguard the human rights and freedoms outlined in both Uganda's constitution and the United Nations (UN) conventions on human rights.

It is crucial to remember that the Ugandan government has faced significant reductions in its national budget from various international development partners, including the World Bank, United States of America (USA), United Kingdom (UK), and others. Additionally, sanctions have been imposed on certain government officials, resulting in increased poverty levels and a decline in the provision of essential services, among other consequences.

Dr. Frank Mugisha asserts that the repeal of this law is essential to ensure that all Ugandans can fully enjoy their rights and freedoms.
