Ugandan government shrugs off aid cuts over anti-homosexual law

Posted by Joseph on 4 March, 2014

Yes! A government that believes the gospel message “What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, yet suffers the loss of his soul'”

Uganda has shrugged off foreign aid cuts and international criticism of its tough new anti-gay law, saying it could do without Western aid.

 

“The West can keep their ‘aid’ to Uganda over homos, we shall still develop without it,” government spokesman Ofwono Opondo said in a message on Twitter.

Hours later the World Bank stalled a $90 million loan planned to help Uganda strengthen its health care system.

“We have postponed the project for further review to ensure that the development objectives would not be adversely affected by the enactment of this new law,” a spokesman for the global poverty lender said.

 

The World Bank move follows action by Denmark, the Netherlands and Norway to freeze or change aid programmes for Uganda and blunt criticism from the 

United States and Sweden after President Yoweri Museveni signed off Mondayon one of the world’s toughest anti-gay laws.
