Ethics and Integrity minister Rev. Fr. Simon Lokodo has warned Ugandans to avoid having “irresponsible sex” since its one acts fuelling the spread of HIV/Aids the country.
Speaking on Monday during celebrations to honour legendary Ugandan musician and Aids activist, Philly Bongoley Lutaaya, who died of HIV-related infection in December 1989, Minister also highlighted how Ugandans use lunch breaks more to have sex than a meal.
“In Uganda, 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,” Rev Fr Lokodo said.
According to the official statistics, HIV prevalence has lately been on a rise after years of steady decline, raising concern that the increased infections are a result of complacence.
The minister however also saluted Lutaya for his efforts in the fight against HIV/AIDS that included awareness performances at schools, helped put a human face to the disease and fight the associated stigma.
