First lady Janet Museveni has lashed out at parents who have now resorted to selling their underage daughters off for marriage.
“This is a message to all our children, young and old, who have had to be at home because of the Covid-19 pandemic,” she said on Thursday.
“I have got reports that some of you are being abused and or married off. This is absurd.”
Warning parents, Janet also reached out to the girls “to do something to save yourselves”.
“If you have no one to run to, please find a phone and dial the Child Help line on 116 and someone will help you.”
