Ugandan leader defiant after World Bank cuts off loans over anti-LGBTQ law

World Bank said on Tuesday that Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Act, which imposes the death penalty for certain same-sex acts, contradicted its values.The bank will not consider new public financing for Uganda until it can be sure that projects it finances in the country do not discriminate against sexual and gender minorities, it said.In a statement on Wednesday night, Museveni said that Uganda would not give in to pressure from foreign institutions."It is, therefore, unfortunate that the World Bank and other actors dare to want to coerce us into abandoning our faith, culture, principles and sovereignty, using money. They really underestimate all Africans," he said.Museveni said that Uganda had other sources for loans and was trying to reduce borrowing in any case.
