Minister asked to resign for inciting rapists against women

25 September 2013, 17:57 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - A cross section of parliamentarians in Uganda have called for the resignation of a minister who reportedly supported rapists.

On Tuesday, the Speaker of the parliament of Uganda, Rebecca Kadaga, directed the minister of state for the youth, Ronald Kibuule, to come out with a statement explaining his pronouncement on rape victims.

The speaker’s directive came after different members of parliament raised complaints that the minister’s statement was an incitement to rapists against women.

Newspapers in Uganda on Tuesday ran a story quoting the minister blaming women who wear short dresses and skirts saying that they invite rapists themselves and are to blame if raped.

Members of parliament said in a joint statement,"The minister should come out with an apology to the women of Uganda and if possible resign."

The MPs said that rape has no defence and therefore the minister was out of order and needed to apologise to all those who are concerned.

Efforts to get a comment from the minister were fruitless as he was not in the house and his phone was off.
