SIR—I am disgusted by the article in your paper on page 19, on September 4, under the headline: “Father forcefully sells off his virgin daughter”. How on earth could such things still be happening in Uganda amidst this entire claim about development, justice and increased literacy. How can a father like Musa Kateregga be allowed to go free after acting in such a shameful and irresponsible way? This is evidence of how far our nation has strayed. Surely someone out there must be able to help these innocent, helpless, exploited and abused young people. Surprisingly, a lot of parents are often left to go free and I can never tell how or even why. We are sick and tired of them. We would love to see justice done. Denis Kigongo Youth Outreach Uganda
