Museveni Signs Controversial NGO Bill

Museveni signs a controversial bill that seeks to regulate non-governmental organisations.

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has signed a controversial bill that seeks to regulate non-governmental organisations in his country.

Adrian Jjuuko, a Ugandan human rights lawyer, wrote on his Twitter page last month that Museveni signed the Non-Governmental Organisations Act of 2015 on 30 January 2016.

In a similar vein, Frank Mugisha, executive director of Sexual Minorities Uganda, a Ugandan lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender advocacy group, warned that, “This law will make my work very difficult and outlaw the organisation I work for.

It will undermine all the efforts we have been working for and further discriminate LGBT persons.”
