Selling or Buying and Chewing Puss’y Vendors Will Land You 15 Years in Prison, New Law

Selling or Buying and Chewing Pussy Vendors Will Land You 15 Years in Prison, New Law || The Parliament of Uganda has passed the Sexual Offences Bill, 2019 providing for criminalisation of a range of sexual offenses that have not been provided for in the existing law including buying and chewing prostitutes or sex workers.

 

The key among these is prostitution being criminalised with buyers facing a jail term of up to fifteen years whereas the Penal Code Act, Cap. 120 provides for a number of sexual offences, the provisions are outdated and do not reflect the evolving trends in social attitudes, values and sexual practices.

As a result, the courts of law find a challenge in dealing with new forms of sexual violence and exploitation such as sex tourism, indecent communication and child marriages among others.

Legislators therefore, perceive the new law as a relief to the country, considering the rampant cases of sexual violence that go unchecked in homes, schools and several institutions.

 

“This is the law that is going to redefine sexual conduct in this country; this piece of legislation is not for the woman only but for all. Any Christian or Muslim would be happy that there is something taken from the Bible and legislated upon,” said Hon Jacob Oboth, the Chairperson of the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee.

Moroto district Woman MP, Hon Stella Etiang said the bill gives a sigh of relief from archaic cultures that have for long encouraged sexual violence.

 

“This bill will help us get rid of some bad cultures in Karamoja. At some point, women were forced to marry men they did not like; it was some kind of forced marriage or marital rape,” said Etiang.

MPs in support of the provision cited reasons such as refusal by one partner to use protection, the biological nature of male partners and the need for women to heal after birth. Pakwach District Woman MP, Hon Jane Avur Pacuto said that a woman who has just given birth has a right to withdraw her consent to the sexual act when she realizes she has not healed completely.
