Good Friday in Uganda

On Friday a Ugandan court overturned the country’s new anti-gay law, but only on a technicality:

Activists erupted in cheers after the court ruled the law ‘null and void,’ but some cautioned that the fight was not over: The state could appeal the ruling in the Supreme Court and legislators might try to reintroduce new anti-gay measures. The law provided jail terms up to life for those convicted of engaging in gay sex. It also allowed lengthy jail terms for those convicted of the offenses of ‘attempted homosexuality’ as well as ‘promotion of homosexuality.’
