Castrate Foreign Sex Abusers – Matembe
By Serestino Tusingwire
Former Ethics and Integrity Minister, Miria Matembe has called for the castration of foreign businessmen who sexually abuse female employees.
The call from Matembe came after she heard the testimony of two women who said they had been sexually abused at work.
One woman said she was forced to perform sex acts on her boss over a period of two years, while another said she was shut in her boss’s office and abused while his gun rested on the table.
“I didn’t know that our women are being dehumanised to this level by these so-called investors under our nose. This degradation is turning Ugandans into nothing in their country,” Matembe said while at a press conference organised by activists campaigning against sexual harassment.
The Foundation for Human Rights Initiative said the proposal would help deliver justice for abused women.
One of the woman said that when she reported the case to police, she was told it was normal for a boss to ask his employees for sex.
