User:Amgine/News shorts/20110128/UK court orders lesbian Ugandan deported
Two days after Ugandan gay activist David Kato was beaten to death in his home, fellow Ugandan Brenda Namiggade awaits imminent deportation at Heathrow Airport near London. The British Home Office says a judge previously ruled Ms Namiggade was "not homosexual", and so does not qualify as a refugee. Homosexuality is a crime in Uganda, punishable by up to 9 years imprisonment. Ugandan MP David Bahati, who has authored a bill which would apply the death penalty in some cases of homosexuality, has called on Ms Namiggade to "repent or reform" to avoid being arrested on her return to Uganda.
