THE state minister for gender has blamed the increasing moral decay among the youth on irresponsible behaviour such as indecent dressing by parents.

Rukia Isanga Nakadama said some parents wear mini-skirts, which influences their children’s behaviour.

“When the young girls see their mothers wearing mini-skirts they also copy. Some parents even buy them for their daughters,” Nakadama said while launching a research into the needs of women and girls.

The function was held at Naluwerere in Bugiri town council at Hindocha Primary School on Monday.

She also launched a book on women and girls sexual health. The research will focus on finding solutions to the problems of those involved in the sex trade in Naluwerere township.

She noted that though the general HIV infection rate had decreased, it had risen among women. She called for abstinence, faithfulness to ones partner and using condoms to fight AIDS.
