The Minister of Ethics and Integrity Father Simon Lokodo has today evening announced through a presser that the Nyege Nyege Festival which was slated to takeplace on the 6th to the 9th of September has been canceled.
The Minister’s address highlights a number of controversies as per the event stating that the name itself ‘Nyege Nyege’ means ‘sex sex’. The Minister has ordered the Police Force not to allow anyone converge for the event come that day.
Many online voices continue to criticize the decision citing severe impacts on the tourism industry of the country as well as the peoples’ freedoms. Honourable Nsaba Butulo had earlier said the event is one where people have sex in the open and sex with animals as well.
