By Reporter

The Chairman of the Iteso Cultural Union Council, Paul Sande Emolot, has decried the incidents of teenage pregnancies that happened during the Covid lockdown.

Emolot was speaking during the launch of the AIDO Network International chapter in Uganda on 20 January 2022 at City Royal Resort Hotel in Bugolobi.

My heart is bleeding for any girl-child who was defiled during the time schools were closed due to the Covid pandemic,” Emolot said. “However, I thank Government for permitting even the young mothers to return to class.”

AIDO Network International is a non-political and non-profit making civil society organisation that seeks to revive respect for and pride in Africa’s traditional values through culture as a tool for unity, development and social cohesion. AIDO currently has a presence in 12 countries, Germany, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, South Sudan, Uganda, Togo, Eswatini, Cameroon, USA, and the United Kingdom where its headquarters are located.

Emolot thanked AIDO for promoting culture, noting that it shapes communities and families, while preserving morals.

In a speech read for her by her undersecretary, James Dombo, the first deputy prime minister and minister of East African Community Affairs, Rebecca Kadaga, who was the chief guest, commended AIDO for stimulating development from the grassroots through cultural institutions. She pledged government support to AIDO in its activities.

Also in attendance were the Prime Minister of Bamasaba Cultural Institution, Geoffrey Wepondi and the Prime Minister of Bunyoro-Kitara Kingdom, Andrew Byakutaga.
