According to the Committee chairperson, Annet Kezaabu, the LGBT community is now using schools to recruit, groom, initiate, teach, and later turn learners into agents of change in a wicked manner.
Pornography committee warns schools on homosexuality
The Anti-Pornographic Control Committee at the Directorate of Ethics and Integrity has warned that schools are now the prime target for LGBT communities and that urgent attention must be exercised from every stakeholder to deal with the vice.
Kezaabu says these are being trapped with incentives majorly scholarships as she encourages parents to be more vigilant.
She calls for more awareness around children by guiding them to resist gifts and items from people they barely know.
Kezabu’s concerns come at the back drop of the Church of Uganda Archbishop Samuel Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu’s public confession that they had received reports of a group of underground individuals on a mission to recruit school-going children into homosexuality.
Kaziimba advised Government to set up a mechanism for learners to report individuals recruiting school-going children into homosexuality.
In 2017, a nine-member Anti-Pornographic Control Committee was put in place by former Minister for Ethics and Integrity, Fr. Simon Lokodo.
During the inauguration of the Committee at the Uganda Media Center, Lokodo said Government will spend sh2b each year to fund activities of the ad hoc team.
Chaired by Annette Kezaabu Kasimbazi, who represents the media fraternity, the team operates a fully-fledged secretariat with support of technical staff and have the latitude to incorporate any subject specialists of interest. The Committee has between 30 to 40 members of staff.
