        "body": "Veterinary authorities in Sheema District, Western Uganda have put a temporary ban on selling pork products and pig movements over a reported outbreak of African swine fever (ASF) in the area.\n\nIn a letter dated 27th June, 2022, addressed to the Chief administrative officer Sheema district local government and signed Dr .Joseph Amanya, District Veterinary Officers (DVO) ,authorities temporarily slumped a ban on the slaughter and movement of pigs in and out of Sheema over claiming that there is a danger of people consuming dead carcasses unknowingly and the disease may spread to other parts of the district and beyond.\n\n''Samples have been picked for submission to NADDEC Lab Entebbe and as we await results the following measures are hereby instituted; All movements of pigs in and out of the whole district STOP immediately until further notice. Slaughter of pigs and pork joints in Sheema municipality and Sheema south constituency stop immediately'',reads the letter.\n\nDr.Amanya further ordered that all sick pigs should be isolated immediately and proper burial of the dead .He added that strict biosecurity measures at all pig farms in the district should be considered, emphasizing that pigs should not be fed leftovers from markets or pig products like bones.\n\n''With issuance of this letter all relevant authorities are encouraged to act accordingly for the good of the farmers, our herds, district and country at large'', notes Dr.Amanya.\n\nIt should be remembered that a recent report published by the World Animal Protection indicated that Uganda tops in pork consumption standing at 65.4%, followed by Zambia (60.5%), Tanzania (59.6%) and Kenya trailing.\n\nCourtesy Photo\n\nResponsible for massive losses in pig populations and drastic economic consequences, African swine fever (ASF) has become a major crisis for the pork industry in recent years.\n\nCurrently affecting several regions around the world, and with no effective vaccine, the disease is not only impeding animal health and welfare but has also detrimental impacts on biodiversity and the livelihoods of farmers, according to the World Organization for Animal Health (WOAH).\n\nThe virus is highly resistant in the environment, meaning that it can survive on clothes, boots, wheels, and other materials. It can also survive in various pork products, such as ham, sausages or bacon.",

        "body": "A 39-year-old man is in police detention after he was arrested for allegedly slapping Minister of State for Works and Transport, Mr Musa Ecweru during Sunday mass at St. Michael Catholic Church in Wera Sub County in Amuria District.\n\nIt's alleged that the minister who is also the Amuria County MP, was attending prayers at the church when Mr Michael Okurut, a resident of Wera attacked him.\n\nSources that witnessed the 11:30am incident told this publication on conditions of anonymity that Okurut quietly and meekly entered the church building and walked to the altar where he made the sign of the cross before he approached the unsuspecting minister who was busy giving a speech to the congregation and slapped him on the ear sending shockwaves into the congregation.\n\n\"He came quietly and even performed the sign of the cross. I thought he would locate himself a seat like other members of the congregation were doing but he instead walked to the minister and whispered something before he slapped the minister hard on the ear,\" a source said and added\n\n\"He attempted to slap the minister for the second time but he blocked his hand before his escorts who were waiting from outside rushed into the church and subdued him (Okuru).\"\n\nMr Oscar Ageca, the acting police spokesperson for East Kyoga said Okurut was arrested and taken to Wera police station for interrogations.\n\n\"A case of assault was opened at Wera Police station where statements were recorded and the suspect is detained as inquiries and investigation into the matter is expedited,\" Mr Ageca said.\n\nWhen contacted by this publication, Mr Ecweru described the suspect as mentally ill.\n\n\"We have established his background information. We have confirmed that he was a mad man. His madness attacks him occasionally and when he suffers he is wild and violent,\" Mr Ecweru said.",

        "body": "Moroto, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Commanders of the Anti Stock Theft Unit-ASTU have been hailed by the UN human rights country representative, Robert Kotchani for respecting human rights while carrying out disarmament operations in Karamoja.\n\nKotchani, who last week officially closed a one-day Karamoja regional human rights protection meeting held in Moroto, said ASTU personnel constitute one of the forces that have respected human rights and called upon other state agencies such as UPDF and regular police to follow their example.\n\nASTU is a unit within the police force created to deal with livestock theft.\n\nCurrently, there are about 2,000 ASTU personnel deployed to do joint operations with the Uganda People's Defence Force to end cattle rustling in Karamoja.\n\n\"Our human rights records show that from the beginning of January to March this year, there are only 3 cases of human rights abuse by ASTU while on duty in Karamoja but after our joint regional human rights meeting, ASTU commanders have improved and right now from March to June it is only one case of human rights violations which am sure going forward it will reduce to zero cases,\" he said.\n\nThe statement by Kotchani lit a smile on the faces of ASTU commanders who attended the meeting. Micheal Longole, the Karamoja regional police spokesperson told URN that it is their obligation as disciplined forces to respect human rights.\n\n\"When you look at our operations, respect for human rights is number one,\" he said.\n\nPaul Mudong, chairman of the peace committee of Lotiri village in Nadunget sub-county said the current operations by the forces in Karamoja are so friendly compared to the first operation of 2002 to 2007.\n\n\"Much as there are some incidents of human rights abuse, it is not like in the first disarmament exercise where people were mistreated like terrorists,\" he said.\n\nClementina Nangiro, another peace committee member said the respect for human rights was a reason why women are taking a lead in gun recovery as there is no fear of mistreatment.\n\nPaul Lokol, the district chairperson Nabilatuk district said the forces need to involve more stakeholders such as religious leaders in the operations.\n\n\"We are happy that abuse of human rights in Karamoja is not like in the previous disarmament but more effort is needed so that the forces don't go over board,\" he said.",

        "title": "4-year-old girl enrolled on HIV treatment after being defiled by 56-year-old man",
        "body": "A four-year-old girl in Luwero district has been enrolled on post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) to protect her from contracting HIV/Aids after being defiled by a 56-year-old man.\n\nThe minor, a pupil in 'baby class' at Katuum Asubira primary school is alleged to have been defiled by the suspect identified as Mugagga Matovu. The suspect lives just a stone's throw away from the school premises. The victim's mother explains that on June 21 the child returned home at break time carrying her knickers in her hands while crying, saying that she had been defiled by Mugagga.\n\nShe explains that together with teachers, they immediately arrested Mugagga and locked him in a classroom till police transferred him to Luwero central police station for interrogation. It is alleged that the suspect admitted to committing the offence and asked to settle the case with the parents of the victim in vain.\n\nThe mother of the victim explains that health workers at Luwero police health centre examined the minor before transferring her to Luwero hospital where she was enrolled on PEP and must now take two pills every day for the next two months.\n\n\"I gave that PEP to the child but the child is very very weak. She doesn't want to drink, she doesn't want to eat, every time she just wants to sleep,\" the mother said.\n\nThe father's victim says that apart from struggling to take the drugs, the minor is traumatized following the defilement. He has since asked the police and court to ensure that the suspect gets the maximum sentence for the offence.\n\n\"I'm extremely angry because my child has been forced to start taking pills every day - not because she deliberately engaged in unprotected sexual behaviour or that she was born HIV-positive. She's going to live with this trauma for the rest of her life. The court must give this man the maximum sentence,\" said the father.\n\nEmmanuel Nsubuga, a local leader in Luwero town has condemned the rising cases of defilement in the area. He, however, says that only a few suspects are successfully prosecuted, which doesn't deter others from committing the same.\n\nLiving Twazagye, the Luwero district police commander, says that the suspect is still in custody at Luwero Central police station. He says that police have already examined the suspect and the victim as part of the investigations into the case. Twazagye says that they have preferred charges of aggravated defilement against the suspect and forwarded his file to the resident state attorney for sanctioning.\n\nAccording to the police crime report for 2021, Luwero registered 76 defilement cases and ranks in second position with the highest number of cases across the country. Mukono district came first after registering 100 cases.\n\nSeveral cases remain unreported at police stations compared to reports from health centres. According to the Luwero district health report, at least 16,163 girls below the age of 19 years got pregnant in the 2020/21 financial year. Of these, 442 were below 15 years of age.\n\nRelated Stories",

According to the roadmap, the nominations of candidates were scheduled to start this week.\n\nByabakama, says that the commission will issue a new programme for the activities when the funds are availed. At the time of the cancellation, the Electoral Commission had finalized the compilation of the village women residents' register and was conducting the display of registers at each village/cell across the country.\n\nOn June 10, the Electoral Commission started to compile registers at the village level for women to participate in the women's council elections. The four-year term of office of the current councils expires in August 2022.\n\nRelated Stories",

        "body": "Electoral Commission officials registering women for the elections recently\n\nThe Electoral Commission has suspended the women councils and committee elections over lack of funds.\n\nIn February, the Electoral Commission issued a roadmap detailing the various activities to be conducted under the programme for elections of women councils and committees from the village to the national level.\n\nHowever, speaking at a consultative meeting at Gogonyo county in Pallisa district, Electoral Commission chairperson, Justice Simon Byabakama said that the ministry of Finance informed the commission that there are no funds for conducting the activities. According to the roadmap, the nominations of candidates were scheduled to start this week.\n\nByabakama, says that the commission will issue a new programme for the activities when the funds are availed. At the time of the cancellation, the Electoral Commission had finalized the compilation of the village women residents' register and was conducting the display of registers at each village/cell across the country.\n\nOn June 10, the Electoral Commission started to compile registers at the village level for women to participate in the women's council elections. The four-year term of office of the current councils expires in August 2022.\n\nRelated Stories",
