21 October 2015, 12:16
Kampala - A group of Maasai men from Kenya in their traditional attires have invaded Kampala and its neighboring suburbs.
The young men were carrying small jerrycans of traditional medicine which they mostly sell to women.
One of the Maasai men who identified himself as John Kingasanyi, said: ''We sell Maasai traditional medicine which treats several ailments including syphilis, gonorrhea, high blood pressure and others.''
He said they go to Uganda in small groups and at times meet fellow tribesmen in Kampala.
He also disclosed that most of them are employed by rich Maasai men and women as salesmen.
But an official from Uganda National Drug Authority, Percy Mwanga said the Maasais are selling their medicine illegally because it has not been verified and approved by the Authority, and pledged that soon they will round them up.
