Uganda’s constitutional court is due on Wednesday to deliver a verdict on a petition seeking to annul the country’s tough Anti-Homosexuality Act (AHA), a lawyer for the petitioners said on Tuesday. The ruling could underscore a growing anti-gay crackdown across Africa, including in Ghana where legislators also passed an anti-gay law in February. It also could have economic implications for the continent’s largest exporter of coffee beans. Passage of the Ugandan legislation in May last year triggered sanctions including from the World Bank and U.S.
