Speaker of the Ugandan Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, has advised lawmakers and protocol officers not to engage in ‘reckless’ sex during the forthcoming Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference.
The 64th edition of this conference is set for the Resort Hotel in Kampala between September 22 and 29.
About a thousand delegates, including speakers and parliamentarians from across 180 Commonwealth nations, are expected to attend.
In light of this, Kadaga has urged her lawmakers to shun the temptations of entering visitors’ rooms.
“When you take them (delegates) to their rooms, stop at the door, you can put in the luggage together with the hotel waiter but don’t loiter in these rooms. Do your work and leave,” Kadaga said.
Kadaga also said that it doesn’t make sense to get intimate with someone you will probably never meet again, explaining that her country has a history of several babies born of fathers who disappeared without a trace.
“You know when the Tanzanians came to this country (to fight former president Idi Amin), there was excitement and a number of children were born in this country. We know their mothers but we don’t know their fathers… Don’t take risks. A man from Jamaica, when will you see him again? And for the men, a woman from the Pacific, Naulu, when will you ever reach there? So you may just be very careful with what you do,” she said.
On a more serious note, the 63-year-old lawyer, who recently spent a month receiving specialized treatment in Nairobi, also urged stakeholders in the tourism sector to capitalize on this opportunity and positively market the country.
