SIR— I wish to react to the article “Spe leaves husband over beating” in The New Vision of Saturday, March 16, page one. To begin with, I sympathise with the Kazibwes whose marital lives are in a shambles. In addition, I condemn domestic violence, particularly the beating of “suitable companions”/wives by carnal husbands. But the most unfortunate part of the article are Vice-President Kazibwe’s words: “Why should somebody bother about someone sleeping with someone, somewhere...? It is nobody’s business who sleeps with who, when and where...” I feel these words are un-Christian, unethical, un-African, unrealistic, immoral and inhuman. For they imply that laws against defilement, rape, forced marriages, incest, adultery and fornication are useless. Everybody can sleep with everybody at any time they wish, in any place they wish and however they wish. Is the Vice-President aware of the consequences of irresponsible sex like unwanted pregnancies that can result in juvenile delinquency, AIDS and other STDs, the destruction of marriages and the wiping out of whole families? Is she aware that she is destroying the institution of marriage itself and those norms and values that keep human society civilised? If women emancipation can drive a woman of Kazibwe’s calibre to utter such immoral statements, then there is something very wrong with the whole concept of women emancipation. We already have enough moral decadence as newspapers and other mass media keep showing us. I call upon Her Excellency the Vice-President either to withdraw her statements or resign. With such utterances from her mouth, she loses credibility and moral authority to lead this country. For the Scripture says: “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” (St Luke 6:45). Reuben B. Kisembo Mukono SIR— It is unbelievable and most unfortunate that the dirty linen which should have been washed at home was the other week washed in public and hung there to dry! Whether they are true or not, these revelations and exposure have stunned the nation and other countries abroad. Those who may know about Shakespeare will remember what Caesar told Brutus, in Julius Caesar, “Et tu Brutus?” (Even you, Brutus?) And so say all of us. Rev Francis Aseete Soroti
