in the Kenyan president s trial, say-
ing there is no longer sufficient
evidence to charge him with
crimes against humanity.
The trial against President Uhuru
Kenyatta was scheduled to start in
Kenyatta is accused of funding a
local militia that conducted reprisal
attacks during the 2007 post-elec-
tion violence. He denies the charges.
The case has suffered major setbacks
in recent months.
A key witness is not willing to
testify while another one confessed
to giving false evidence on a critical
event in the case, according to Pros-
ecutor Fatou Bensouda.
"Having carefully considered my
evidence and the impact of the two
withdrawals, I have come to the
conclusion that currently the case
against Mr Kenyatta does not satisfy
the high evidentiary standards
required at trial," Bensouda said in
a statement. More than 1,000 peo-
ple died and hundreds of thousands
were displaced when ethnic groups
loyal to leading candidates battled
one another after the election.
Kenyatta s deputy, William Ruto,
faces similar charges. His trial started
African leaders have accused the
court of targeting their continent,
and have demanded charges against
sitting leaders be dropped.

Uganda s parliament has passed
a bill to toughen the punishment
for homosexual acts to include

The BBC s Catherine

government knows there will be
an international outcry, which
could see some countries suspend
aid to the country.
She says that Prime Minister
Amama Mbabazi might follow up
on his complaints about a lack of
quorum, while it remains to be
seen whether President Yoweri
Museveni will sign the bill into law.
The private member s bill orig-
inally proposed the death penalty
for some offences, such as if a
minor was involved or the per-
petrator was HIV-positive, but
this has been replaced with life
The MP behind the bill, David
Bahati, told the AFP news agency:
"This is victory for Uganda. I am
glad the parliament has voted
The introduction of this bill led
Uganda to be called the worst
place to be gay.
As parliament debated it, gay
activists met in a suburb of the
capital Kampala to work out their
own plan. They say their lives are
often in threat here because of
South Africa s biggest trade
union has announced that it is

The decision by Numsa to
withdraw its support in next year s
election is a blow to the ANC.
