WAKISO, Uganda|SHIFTMEDIA| Partying is fun, but with COVID 19 cases already past the 10,000 mark, we need to think twice before we get out of our homes.
Those who will regret ever partying like no tomorrow are the sex party ladies who were nabbed at Tower Guest House in Kira Municipality last week. 11 of the 22 ladies appeared before Kira Chief Magistrate Joan Aciro who convicted them on their own plea of guilt.
The charged were convicted of six offences ranging from the disobedience of lawful orders, negligence likely to spread infectious disease, keeping a brothel, indecent practices, prostitution, and promoting trafficking in persons. Those charged include Prossy Nabukenya aged 20, Esther Apio, 26, Suzan Akwir, 25, Mariam Nakalembe, 20, Christian Nsereko, 21, Edith Nakimbugwe, 22, Phiona Nalubega.
Others are Sabra Achen, 23, Ali Mugisha, 26, Shakira Nanteza, 28, and Irene Namatovu, majority sex workers.
They face between 3- 7 years in jail. According to prosecution, the 11 and other still at large on October 10, 2020, at Kireka Tower Guest House, Kira Municipality in Wakiso district while in a sex party disobeyed lawful orders, against curfew that prescribed no movement between 9 pm to 5.30 am as directed by President Museveni.
The suspected were also accused of unlawfully, and negligently engaging in a social gathering, an act they knew is likely to spread infection of COVID 19, that has so far left 95 Ugandans dead.
