Children of arrested prostitutes storm police station demanding their release

26 March 2015, 21:57 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Police in western Uganda's district of Lyantonde, 250 kms west of Kampala were treated to a rare spectacle after the children of sex workers they arrested last night went to the police station and demanded for their parents' release.

This comes after police mounted an operation Wednesday night where over 100 prostitutes were netted.

According to the district resident commissioner, Tugalagala Matojo, police conducted the operation following reports that the sex workers connive with robbers to harass residents.

In the morning, children of some of the sex workers camped at the police station demanding the release of their mothers.

According to one of the police officers, James Jalendo, some of the children carried babies claiming they wanted to be breastfed.

The children were aged between three and ten years, while some of the babies they carried were as young as three months.

Jalendo said, ''We had to release some of the women after their children stormed our station with crying babies. Surely, we could not continue holding the women in cells while their children were crying outside.''

He said that they released at least 20 of the women because their children pleaded with them.

He however said that they cautioned the released women never to get involved in the vice again.

He said the rest of the sex workers who were not released will be taken to court to be charged for being idle and disorderly and also engaging in prostitution.
