The killing of young women in Uganda

Posted September 13, 2019 from Canada

 

In the past two years, over 30 young women in Uganda have been abducted and then murdered. It is a sitution that has sent shock waves throughou the country, and petrified young women particularly in the capital city, Kampala.

As late as 28 August a 28 years-old NGO worker was kidnapped together with her driver. Their bodies were discovered a few days later.

Earlier this month another young woman and her driver were shot dead on a highway. The motives for these murderers remain elusive. 

The police  has reportedly arrested some suspects and is doing everything possible to get to the root of this problem.

Please join me condemning these horrendous acts violence against women, expressing your sympathy for the families and friends of the murdered women, and in standing in solidarity with the women of Uganda who are living in fear for their lives.

Oh this is so very sad of a news. Pls are these women foreign women or native?
This is a very serious criminal act and must be spoken against. It's suprise me that with this huge number of dead victims yet the news is not gone international?

This should be all over BBC and aljezerra and co. Thanks for sharing and of course I stand against this horror.
Have a great weekend.

Thanks for caring.
It is very sad indeed. I am not sure whether BBC and Aljeezera have picked it up!
We really need the world to know about this heinous crime against women.

Dear Kabahenda,
The violence toward women on this planet is the scourge of all who take part, and of all who stand idly by. We will remember every woman and every girl who has been harmed, killed, gone missing, and join in the pain of the families and friends of missing, tortured and murdered women. I stand with you in solidarity with the women of Uganda.
In sisterhood,
Tam
