The Minister for Education and Sports Hon Janet Kataha Museveni has requested parents to always be responsible towards their children’s well being.
Janet noted that its the responsibility of parents to guide and protect their children especially girl child.
She was speaking at the closure of the youth challenge week that started on 10th Jan 2017 the function that took place at st peter and Paul primary school south division fort portal municipality Kabarole district yesterday.
Janet with great concern noted that most children tend to be spoilt in their young ages where it’s always not simple to decide for themselves and hence accepting which ever proposal comes to them.
She appealed to parents to always stop their children from moving any how especially at night attending clubs as most of them end up falling in love with sugar daddies in clubs, on their way back and others end up being raped thus early pregnancies hence their future being spoilt.
Janet however said that not only does corruption exist in offices but also exists in our homes,schools,markets especially to such people who have intrugious intensions to ruin the young generation.
The Member of Parliament for fort portal municipality Hon Alex Ruhunda urged the youth to stop focusing their eyes on president Museveni but should start up some small income generating projects that can help to deal away with poverty in our country.
Ruhunda said it’s the responsibility for everybody to fight poverty in the country not the president only and so people should be creative enough if they are to yield some thing from their sweat.
The member for Bunyangabo County in Kabarole district who also doubles as the minister for defence and veterans said people should desist from anything that can split them noting that unity and peace is a way to success in life.
