Ugandans are soon losing trust in Uganda’s security services due to increasing crime rates in the country, that includes pervasive assassinations that has no conclusive inquiries says Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi.
He says Uganda police in the process of protecting women in this country should exercise transparency and decisiveness.
“It is very appalling as women continue to be killed. This is when we ask, where will our people seek protection? It’s surprising that police continue to investigate, but such investigations are endless and reports are kept secret. No one gets to know the outcomes,” Kabaka Mutebi stated.
Additionally, Kabaka asked leaders in this country to create more job opportunities for the youth in Uganda especially girls arguing that girls are unfairly treated by employers during job search, a vice government should eliminate.
Kabaka continued to say that the killings and other human abuses hinder development in the country, and as a result government must deal with this plague quickly before people loose trust in Uganda’s security services.
Kabaka Mutebi made the remarks yesterday on Wednesday 9 of May 2019, at a closing ceremony of a women conference in Kampala arranged by Nabagereka Sylvia Nagginda.
However, police spokesperson, Fred Enanga said police has done progressive work as far as killings in the country is concerned, because full accounts was given as regards to Susan Magara’s kidnap and murder as well as others.
“I think police is doing commendable work despite the fact that we only have 5,000 detectives.”
Enanga also said some murder cases that has not gone public, police handle them directly with the complainants.
Nagginda in her speech advised women to stay health, avoid depression, trustworthiness for them to attain prosperity.
The ceremony was attended by various dignitaries from Buganda Kingdom and the Central Government including Mr Pius Bigirimana permanent secretary ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development and Dr Diana Atwine permanent secretary ministry of health.
Dr Atwine argued all women to regularly attend medical check-ups, to enable early detection and treatment of any medical complication.
Today the central government and Buganda Kingdom are jointly on a drive of promoting primary health and development country wide. And that includes immunisation, HIV/Aids fight and Sickle Cells.
Still at the conference, women filed complaints before Mr Bigirimana that includes bureaucracy in accessing women entrepreneurship funds and bribes asked by some ministry officials.
“The money is also given to specific people of specific colour (sectarianism). Not all of us can access it,” one of the women in the conference said.
However, responding to the claim Mr Bigirimana said that the ministry will investigate the matter.
“We will look into all that, but I can tell you that money is for all Ugandans,” said Bigirimana.
