World Bank halts Loan to Uganda over Anti-Gay Law


Oh snap! The World Bank put a stop on a $90m loan to Uganda's health system. Not because they're mean, it's all over Uganda's broke ass Anti-gay law.

World Bank spokesman David Theis said:
"We have postponed the project for further review to ensure that the development objectives would not be adversely affected by the enactment of this new law."
The World Bank president Jim Yong Kim chimed in and wrote in an email:
"In the coming months, we will have a broad discussion about discrimination with staff, management, and our board on these issues. Now is the right moment for this conversation."
The US is concerning a similar thing. I am glad the world is watching and start to act on it.
