“From the reports which police have been receiving these days, there has been an increase in crime in murders, robbery, money laundering, fire arm tracking and theft carried out of prostitution. ‘According to Ugandan constitution there is no section which legalizes prostitution and anybody involved in it is breaking the law because it’s an illegal act’’ he said.
