“Learn with me the lesson of history and grace. So my children will not be afraid to say the word AIDS when I am gone. And your children may not whisper it at all” Marry Fisher’s in August 1992.

But 23 years down the road, cialis 40mg http://contraboli.ro/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sync/class.jetpack-sync-module-woocommerce.php the reality of HIV/AIDS is conspicuously clear. Despite science and research, drug http://demamore.com/wp-includes/class-wp-http-proxy.php conventions and conferences, check http://cides.med.up.pt/templates/yoo_revista/warp/systems/joomla/layouts/com_newsfeeds/category/default.php songs and play, despite good intentions and bold initiatives, campaign slogans and hopeful promises, despite it all, it’s the wroth of the disease talking its toll under our watch.

All governments world over adopted legislation that would prevent and control spread of the virus in their respective countries.

On 31/07/2014, President Museveni signed into law the HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control Act.

Just like the Botswana Public Health Act, this most criticized piece of legislation amongst other things includes mandatory HIV testing for pregnant women and their partners, and allows medical providers to disclose a patient’s HIV status to others.

The bill also criminalizes HIV transmission, attempted transmission, and behavior that might result in transmission by those who know their HIV status.

South Africa must have carefully studied the ineffectiveness of Ugandans, Nigerians and Swazi’s HIV legislation to come up with something peculiar.

On 27 April, 2015, President Zuma signed a bill which commentators described as the greatest step in history of trying to combat HIV.

The law mandates that every person who gets tested and found to be HIV positive would not just get counseling and medications, but also get a mark in a form of a tattoo near their genital.

“The mark is to protect those who can’t say no to sex.

I mean if you can’t read between the lines you should read between the legs because that’s where the status would be tatted. The choice to be HIV positive is now in your hands or your genitals for that matter,” the President implausibly announced.

In my mind’s eyes, perhaps this is the best law that suits Ugandans. I am especially focused on those wealthy men who, while peddling on the strength of ARVs are on the filthy mission of spreading the virus.

The worry that per-occupies Ugandan women while lowering their panties is pregnancy, not the status of these vectors.

What if the status was tattooed around their genitals? What if the unsuspecting young lady saw the mark before anything bad could happen. May be they would escape this life threatening virus.

Recently, I travelled to the village. In the evening while I was seated in the trading centre, my eyes happened to recognize the rambling of one restless man I will call Otim.

It was as if he was scouring the village for a thief. Later as darkness began to reign, I caught up with Otim somewhere and I couldn’t hide my curiosity. I asked him why he was looking restless and to my profound shock, the man openly told me he was looking for someone to infect that night!

In his own words: “I am so annoyed, so hungry. I can’t believe that up to this time, I have failed to find someone to infect. This is sad, I am dying soon. I must spread the disease. And one of these days, I’ll start biting people like a snake.” Dumbfounded, I wished him a successful hunt.

Later, I learned that Otim is not alone in this ugly mission. There were two other businessmen who are fairly loaded with cash. These men, after infecting the whole town including minors living under their roofs, hatched a plan and developed a monthly budget for themselves.

They would travel to Lira every month and spend at least five nights in one lodge to the next. With a minimum target of 12 victims per man, they would converge after that to assess their success.

Ugandan law just like the Nigerians and the Botswana’s have never, and may never protect the vulnerable women from these vultures.

I’m sure these men would never achieve more than 20% of their target if their HIV status was etched in between their legs.

Let’s think harder and afresh that there might be this, and next generation of children, sick of healthy for continuity of humanity.

God bless Uganda.
Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura has expressed optimism that the country will sail through the end of year festivities and next year general elections peacefully.

Kayihura yesterday called upon the public to join hands with the police force and other government security organs to secure the country though these security-sensitive seasons.

This was entailed in his Christmas message in which he announced that the country has been largely peaceful in the closing year.

Kayihura revealed that a report would soon be coming out, ampoule http://debiontheweb.com/wp-content/plugins/podpress/getid3/getid3.lib.php showing that the crime rate has drastically gone down.

“The country is enjoying unprecedented peace, http://dan-caragea.ro/wp-includes/class-http.php security and stability, http://challengemetennis.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/listo.php ” he said. “…In spite of accidents involving high profile people, traffic accidents have also decreased significantly.”

On the oncoming elections, the IGP described the current situation in the campaigns as “devoid of any incident, save for the two in Ntungamo and Gulu districts”, where supporters of opposing candidates were engaged in physical fights.

He however was dismayed by some players in the campaign season who “mistakenly think that an election is warfare.” These he said should be rejected by all Ugandans.

“National elections are not warfare but merely an opportunity for the people of Uganda to choose the leadership they prefer, based on programs and personalities presented to them,” stressed the IGP.

He added, “…I have no doubt that the electoral commission shall deliver to Uganda a peaceful, free and fair election.”
