Minister of Ethics and Integrity Father Simon Lokodo came out and vowed to put prostitution to a halt.
While speaking to journalists at media center today, the minister said he formed a team that will arrest prostitutes and their clients. He also went on to say that it saddens him to see what we have accepted in society.
“The police and ministry of Ethics have formed a squad to arrest prostitutes, more focus will be put on those who procure them. It is painful that people in high position and law enforcers procure prostitutes, but the law will catch them too.”
Fr. Lokodo won’t just stop there, he has also written to NTV Uganda and Bukedde TV concerned about their shows ‘be my date’ and ‘abanoonya’ respectively, saying that matchmaking is a form of prostitution.
