THE Government will reject the legalisation of sex workers, ethics state minister Dr. James Nsaba Buturo said yesterday.

Addressing journalists at Social Security House in Kampala, Buturo said prostitution was immoral and would undermine the struggle against HIV/AIDS.

“What a shame it is. If you are a legislator and you come all the way from Kisoro to come and solicit for prostitution, you are simply detestable. You are saying it’s all right for you to carry a CV which says you are a sex worker. We shall reject this, we shall fight back, because it’s the act it self which is contributing to HIV/AIDS. We are not going to allow it,” he vowed.

On Monday, deputy Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga said Parliament would consider debating the legality of sex workers and their work.

Buturo said, “Legalising prostitution? Is that the best anyone can ever advocate? That is the extent to which our country is going. And they are using ‘sex workers,’ as if to say that is a better word. That is the new trend that is being exerted on our country. We are going to have no value. Just because it is okay in Europe doesn’t mean that it is, in Uganda,” he said.
