This is old news, but since we have had a lot of discussion about this law, I am posting it anyway.

The ruling IMO clearly vindicates the people saying we should wait for the Ugandans to solve this thing instead of alienating them by using sanctions and withdrawal of aid.

Stroked?

Struck/stroked/striked, whatever. Like you I am not a native speaker and if you wanna correct my English just give me the right term instead of putting a fycking question mark after the word.

Sorry, I didn't mean to be snarky or disparaging. Of course there's nothing wrong with making a couple English mistakes from time to time, I just thought the question mark was a fairly neutral (if slightly ironic) way to point it out.

As for the subject matter, great news.

A new bill has been introduced as the law was only invalidated on a technicality. Kenya is toying with a 'death by stoning' bill.
