Ugandans Prefer Sex To Food — Fr Lokodo
By Serestino Tusingwire
The state minister for Ethics and Integrity, Rev Fr Simon Lokodo, has said that Ugandans use lunch breaks more to have sex than a meal.
He warned Ugandans of “irresponsible sex” which he said is the one fueling the spread of HIV/AIDS.
“In Kampala, sex is done without any respect; anywhere, anyhow, anytime with anybody, especially at lunch breaks where people go to lodges for sex instead of food,” Fr Lokodo said.
Minister Lokodo made the comments on Monday during celebrations to honour legendary Ugandan musician and AIDS activist, Philly Bongole Lutaaya, who died of HIV-related infection in December 1989.
Bongole’s campaigns, including HIV/AIDS awareness performances at schools, helped put a human face to the disease and fight the associated stigma.
It is in this context that the government on Monday organized an event in his honour at Alebtong Primary School in Alebtong District under the theme, “An AIDS-free Uganda, my responsibility”.
HIV prevalence has lately been on a rise after years of steady decline, according to official statistics, raising concern that the increased infections are a result of complacence.
