Sex Workers Meet in Kampala

By Joshua Mutale.
Kampala sex workers have met to chat a way forward on what they call oppressive laws.
Among such laws include the Anti pornography law which they have appealed against since it was passed last year, Sec15 of the Equal opportunities Commission Act 2007 which prevents marginalised groups from accessing benefits provided under the Equal opportunities commission. They are also discussing the NGO draft bill now before parliament for review which these ladies say is very poisonous and seemingly intended to curtail the operation of some NGO’s like Women’s Organisation Network For Human Rights Advocacy (WONETHA).
According to Kyomukama Flavia the Programs manager at WONETHA, they will soon petition the constitutional court to block patliament from passing this bill because its very oppressive and tramples on the basic Human rights like feedom of assembly, speech among others.
” Goverment nolonger receives money from donor agencies since the Anti Homo law was passed and now such money is being chanelled to NGO’s and Government Envys them” Says Flavia.
During the meeting Some sex workers have burst into tear saying they are pushed into the business of the flesh by hurting economic conditions because government has neglected them.
“I lost all my parents, i have five siblings whom i look after and the only source of income is Sex trade, let government also help us. We are ready to try other jobs but we dont have government support” Said one of the sex workers as tears rolled down her face.

POLICE DRIVER STEALS FUEL

As you read this story the hunter is hunted.
Police is hunting for its own male driver names withheld for investigations purposes to substantiate on allegations that he has been selling police fuel each time he is assigned duty with a police Bus.
This after a police Bus registration number UP 2320 was photographed draining fuel from the police Bus into a Jerrycan and since then the photograph of the Bus has gone viral on social media and raising concerns among critical taxpayers who view this waste of their hard earned money.
In the picture, the Police Bus Driver is seen busy pretending to make a call just next to the Bus fuel tank, as his fellow steals fuel from the police Bus.
Sources privy to police operation guidelines have told us that it’s not possible that the Police Could have been Refilling from a Jerry can because all police Vehicles refuel at Only Designated Fuel stations within the Police stations.
“For example in Kampala police vehicles refuel at a fuel station within CPS, Fire Brigade headquarters, Police Baracks Nsamba and Shell Capital among others’ the Source told us.
However our efforts to get a comment from the Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga have proved futile because his known public Phone line has been off pointing to another crisis. Imagine if we were calling for emergency help?
