Must read

Mary Begumisa (Sembabule District Woman MP) has urged government to investigate the recent spate of murders against sex workers in Sembabule Town Council, after four women were sexually violated and later killed between October 2023 and February 2024.

“Four women have been murdered between October 24, 2023 and 5th February 2024 and they are; Annet Nantingo, Madrine Nakwiya, Flavia Ajuka, Mastula Nabasirye. All of whom testifies to be sex workers in Sembabule Town Council. They are strangled, raped and murdered and it is keeping on recurring in Sembabule Town Council,” said Bagumisa.

In her prayers to Parliament, Begumisa asked for improvement in security in Sembabule and provision of funds for the other sex workers to start other entrepreneur activities remarking, “Government should quickly help us with a special fund for these women like they did for these women in Entebbe where these women claim that this is an economic activity and government should help them with an economic activity because they have children.”

Prime Minister, Robinah Nabbanja in her response said, “It is unfortunate that we have lost lives, however, before coming here, I had already got information that there are murders in Sembabule, we had a meeting with David Muhoozi, Minister of State for Internal Affairs and we have instituted a team to go to Sembabule to find out what really happened and those senior officers will be there for some time so that those criminals are arrested.”

On the establishment of a fund to provide income to the other sex workers to start other economic activities, Nabbanja said, “For our senior citizens who work at night, I can only say they can go to Parish Development Model because that time of Entebbe, there was no PDM and UWEP, so we can only see how these women can access these funds.”
