The Woman Member of Parliament Christine Kaaya has said that violations committed against men have negatively affected women and their children.

Kaaya says that what affects men equally affects women because by imprisoning someone’s husband for political reasons leaves a mother and children in suffering.   She appealed to authorities to ensure the release of political prisoners saying that some children are not in school because of their fathers who are the bread winners are in prison.

She challenged the government on appointment of women to higher offices saying it has not in any way helped in fighting for the plight of the grass root women.

According to Kaaya, the current situation presents women with chances but the systems are not functioning and others are marred with bureaucracies which are male dominated. 

On the issue of environment, Kaaya is optimistic that for the country to achieve a sustainable development, there is need to front the women and girls fight climate change.  She appealed to government to provide civic space to enable civil society help out the community women to get services and knowledge how to utilize the resources around them profitably.

She said that keeping the girl child at school helps them to live healthy lives and help them to build capacity for competitiveness and tap into other opportunities of knowledge.

Rev. Fr Godfrey Muwanga appealed to the women to exercise love for the people and the nation in order to sacrifice for development. He asked women to always seek for knowledge, take action and always put their trust in God for success.

  

Fr Muwanga asked the women to prioritize prayer and work for the good of the society.
