Miria Matembe a former government minister in Uganda has called for the castration of foreign businessmen who sexually abuse female employees, the state-owned New Vision newspaper reports.
The statement according to the state-owned New Vision newspaper reports, quoted the former minister of ethics and integrity as saying this after allegations by two women who said they had been sexually abused at work.
One of the women said she was forced to perform sex acts on her boss over a period of two years, while the other said she was abused shut in her boss’s office, while his gun rested on the table.
At a press conference campaigning against sexual harassment, while reacting to the incident, Ms Matembe said:
I didn’t know that our women are being dehumanised to this level by these so-called investors under our nose. This degradation is turning Ugandans into nothing in their country.”
The Foundation for Human Rights Initiative said the proposal would help deliver justice for abused women.
One of the women who claimed to have reported the case to police said she was told it was normal for a boss to ask his employees for sex, according to the newspaper.
