Parents lament teenage kissing competition

15 January 2015, 20:45 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Parents in Uganda have complained about a kissing competition that was recently organized by an entertainment center for teenagers.

The parents have now called on police and the Ministry of Ethics and Integrity to punish the organizers of the event.

On 1 January 1, the management of Satellite Beach Mukono organized a kissing competition which was attended by hundreds of teenagers.

Most of those who participated in the competition were teenagers and school children.

"What a devastating and shameless way to begin the NewYear," said Carol Nyangoma, one of the parents.

"Was kissing the best for the teenagers, moreover amidst young children?'' she asked.

A parents organization called Parents Club called on the Minister of Ethics and Integrity, Simon Lokoda to investigate the matter and have those responsible arrested.

"We can not allow such to take place in our society. If parliament can vote against homosexuality in the country why does it not punish such places that encourage immorality in our children," Amina Namusi, the chairperson of Parent Club said.

"Lokoda, being a priest can not accept such nonsense. He always fights against immorality and we call upon him to investigate what happened at Satellite  Beach," she said.

Another parent, William Akello said, "There is need for the ministry to be strict on what takes place in entertainment places, otherwise we may one time be shocked by another kind of 'competition'."

"Police should intervene immediately. The license of the place should be cancelled for promoting immorality," said another parent, Osman Mbogo.
