When President Museveni returned the Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2023 back to Parliament, the legal and Parliamentary Affairs committee used Thursday to scrutinize it.
Robinah Rwakoojo, the committee chairperson told journalists on Friday that their report would be written and completed by end of Business Friday.
With the development, she further assured press that the bill will be ready for tabling on Tuesday next week.
On Wednesday, President Museveni returned the controversial bill to Parliament after back to back meetings with various legislators in a bid to reach a harmonised position.
The president wants some aspects of the bill to be incorporated and others revised before he can ascend to it.
The Anti Homosexuality Bill, 2023 criminalises acts of homosexuality, aggravated homosexuality, promotion of homosexuality, child grooming, among other offences.
Under the Bill, anyone who engages in same-sex activity could face life imprisonment, and repeat offenders could be sentenced to death.
The United Nations (UN) and human rights bodies have condemned the passing of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, 2023, with calls to President Museveni not to sign the Bill into law.
