Parliament Stops ‘Nyege Nyege’ Festival Over Immorality

Parliament has  Tuesday afternoon stopped the ‘Nyege Nyege’ festival, an annual social event scheduled to take place next week in Jinja.

Speaker Anitah Among (pictured) said: “We are talking about morality of this country; we are talking about our children. You are trying to promote tourism at the expense of our children? We are not going to allow this function to take part.”

Efforts by the Minister of State for Tourism, Martin Mugarra to defend the event as a hub of tourism met resistance from the House. Mugarra said over 8,000 foreign tourists have already booked tickets for the event.

Tororo Woman MP Sarah Opendi says the event is a breeding ground for sexual immorality.
