The Speaker of Parliament ,Rebecca Kadaga ,have called upon leaders at different levels in Busoga region to rise up against the ongoing problem of men handing over their under aged daughters to old men in sexual acts for very little money.
She says, the problem have gone out of hand and needs to be averted as soon as possible. The problem has majorly been reported in Iganga and Mayuge districts.
It is reported that several men in these districts call in men to sleep with their young daughters for as low as 500 shillings.
“We have been embarrassed as the people of Busoga. I recently received reports indicating that parents are forcing their young children into prostitution as a source of income for the family. Girls as young as ten years are being paid five hundred shillings for commercial sex.I think we have a very serious problem and we have to address it urgently,” she said while presiding over Women’s Day celebrations for Kamuli district on Saturday
