In another development Dr. Lulume has asked World Bank to revisit its decision of withdrawing money meant for renovation of health facilities in the country.
World Bank recently withdrew the 90 million dollar loan it was to give government for rehabilitating and equipping government health centres across the country following the president’s assent to the Anti-gay bill.
Lulume said withdraw of funds for improving health is a worse human rights violation than putting in place a law against homosexuality.
He argues that not all cultural and moral values are global and therefore, World Bank ought to respect Uganda’s decision against homosexuality as one of her values.
