I still read it as applying only to the subsection

…3. Aggravated homosexuality.
(1) A person commits the offense of aggravated homosexuality where the…
…(f) offender is a serial offender, or…

In order to be an “offender” with continual offenses under this section to be “a serial offender” under this section of Aggravated Homosexuality. Therefore to be a serial offender you have to commit multiple Aggravated Homosexual acts defined in this section. In other words you have to commit the offense of Aggravated Homosexuality before you can be a serial offender.

I don’t see how this could apply as serial offenders for other sections in this bill. I would submit that I am not in the legal profession in Uganda, but then again anyone else commenting on this bill is either.

That is a very bizarre misreading.

Since each of those other acts already carry the death penalty, why would you think that your interpretation make any sense? They get double-death?

Repeat offender clearly means a repeat offender of homosexual sex. That is all. It’s a bill about the offense of homosexuality.
