Speaking to the Associated Press, MP David Bahati said:
The death penalty is something we have moved away from, many people have expressed concern about that provision providing for the death sentence and I’m sure when we start hearings on that bill, we will hear many more concerns
Bahati said his group would go along if the committee handling the bill wanted to remove that part of legislation.
The legislation is expected to come up for vote by mid-may and has been condemned by many, including US President Barack Obama.
Shame on you Uganda!
