The Marriage and Divorce Bill is back in parliament for discussion and some sections are causing dust among MPs.
It also deals with widow inheritance and separation, but also outlaws demands for return of marriage gifts given as bride price during introduction.
However, the bill is not clear on the side of Muslims and does not cover marriages under the Islamic faith. Hon. Latif Ssebaggala has thus appealed to the government to first think of a law that will regulate marriages under the Islamic faith.
The Attorney General and Minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs Hon. Freddie Ruhindi says the Law Reform Commission is finalizing consultations with members of the Muslim community who were opposed to some sections of the bill.
