Rukungiri: Increased homosexuality, crime attributed to drug abuse

State Minister for Bunyoro affairs in the office of the Prime Minister, Jennifer Namuyangu has urged leaders in Rukingiri district to come up with bye laws to reduce increased crimes related to drug abuse.

Minister Namuyangu made the remarks on Tuesday during the Citizens Information Fora dubbed government Baraza programme held in Rukungiri municipality at municipal council play grounds with the intention of holding leaders accountable for Government money released to the district.

Her call was derived from the community based services reports which indicated that there is a high rate of criminality in Rukungiri due to the increased use of drugs.

Namuyangu called up the leaders not to wait for the central government all the time as they have the authority to put on bye-laws to guard against any evil acts in their areas.

She also called up the local leaders to embrace the self-help program (burungi-bwansi) before the government intervention.

In her report the Rukungiri municipal community development Officer, Hilda Nasazi noted that most of the people involved in drug abuse are the youth and this affects their behavior as well as dropping out of school and this puts the area at risk of being a spot area of criminals.
