The World Bank has decided to suspend offering of new loans to the Ugandan Anatomy. This comes after their entrenched stance on fighting against LGBTQ in their country after making it a law with severe punishments on those caught violating the law.

According to the World Bank, The Ugandan Government’s Anti -Homosexuality Law does not correlate with the core values of The World Bank, hence making the World Bank suspend all new loans to Uganda.

The International community outside Africa keeps on being very stringent on The Ugandan Anatomy as in June, The United States Government imposed some travel bans on certain Top notch Government officials in Uganda as a result of the Anti Homosexuality Law.

This is the statement released by the World Bank to Uganda on August 8th, 2023.

“Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Act fundamentally contradicts the World Bank Group’s values. We believe our vision to eradicate poverty on a livable planet can only succeed if it includes everyone irrespective of race, gender, or sexuality. This law undermines those efforts. Inclusion and non-discrimination sit at the heart of our work around the world.

Immediately after the law was enacted, the World Bank deployed a team to Uganda to review our portfolio in the context of the new legislation. That review determined additional measures are necessary to ensure projects are implemented in alignment with our environmental and social standards. Our goal is to protect sexual and gender minorities from discrimination and exclusion in the projects we finance. These measures are currently under discussion with the authorities.

No new public financing to Uganda will be presented to our Board of Executive Directors until the efficacy of the additional measures has been tested.

Third-party monitoring and grievance redress mechanisms will significantly increase, allowing us to take corrective action as necessary.

The World Bank Group has a longstanding and productive relationship with Uganda; and we remain committed to helping all Ugandans—without exception—escape poverty, access vital services, and improve their lives.

President Museveni remains Relentless and does not care about what the International community says. He sees all those engaging in LGBTQ Acts as Mentally unstable people. The Global Freedom Board of AFRICAN VOICES INTERNATIONAL stands with President Museveni in his Relentless act. Our cultures must be sustained and no one must tell The African Anatomy how they should lead their people.
