A Ugandan MP who voted in favour of a bill that targets homosexual people has told the BBC that if the US withdrew funding in protest it would amount to modern genocide.
The US government says there could be repercussions should the measure be signed into law by President Yoweri Museveni.
MP Charles Ayume says that Uganda's sovereignty should be respected. He added that there were things he objected to in the US, but he did not want to interfere in the politics of that country.
Dr Ayume says that in backing the measure, he was representing the views of his constituents.
