Uganda's Constitutional Court upholds a controversial anti-gay law, inciting global condemnation and straining relationships with Western countries.

Uganda's Constitutional Court has upheld a sweeping anti-gay law that President Yoweri Museveni signed last year, attracting worldwide condemnation, especially from the United States, and straining the East African nation’s ties with the West. The legislation imposes severe penalties for gay sex, including life imprisonment and, in some cases, the death penalty. The law's approval has led to international repercussions, including funding suspension by the World Bank and sanctions by the U.S.
