Uganda President Yoweri Museveni Refuses To Approve Uganda's Anti-Gay Law
Rather he has written to the parliamentary speaker criticising her for passing it in December without a quorum. Homosexuals were "abnormal" or were so for "mercenary reasons" and could be "rescued",
a local paper quotes his letter as saying.
According to The BBC'sCatherine Byaruhanga in the capital, Kampala, the president is aware that if he signs the bill there will be an international outcry, which could see some countries suspend aid to the country.
Mr Museveni is trying to reach a compromise with MPs, as if he refuses to sign the bill, parliament can still force it through with a two-thirds vote.
