Uganda Dismisses Obama Pressure On Anti-gay Law
Uganda on Tuesday dismissed U.S. president Barack Obama’s call to its leader Yoweri Museveni not to sign an anti-homosexuality law, saying the U.S. was trying to blackmail the east African country. On Sunday, two days after President Museveni said he would sign the law widely criticized abroad as harsh and unjust, Obama warned that would complicate United States relations with Uganda and be a “step backward for all Ugandans.” A senior Obama administration official said Washington, a major aid donor sending more than $400 million a year, would review U.S. relations with Uganda, a key regional ally in the fight against Islamic extremism in Somalia.
