A rare bit of good news from that nation:

A Ugandan High Court judge has ruled that media companies in the country should not publish the identities of people they say are homosexuals.

The decision was described as a “landmark ruling” by gay rights activists.

The case was brought against The Rolling Stone newspaper which last year published several lists of people its editor said were gay.


“The judge granted a permanent injunction against Rolling Stone from publishing these names,” lawyer John Francis Onyango, who represented the three gay rights campaigners who brought the case, told AFP.

“But the ruling went beyond these applicants and extended to all media,” he added.

Of course, the government is still a danger to the Ugandan people, but at least there are a few voices of sanity in positions of power in Uganda.
