I have written often about the horrific state of rape, child marriage and pedophilia in Uganda. Where apparently millions of Ugandans are only worried about homosexuals, not girls being raped and impregnanted by grown men. At times even their own teachers, fathers and relatives.

Uganda has an issue with the way women and girls are treated. The country which has a 25% teen pregnancy rate, meaning 1 in 4 girls (because girls are children) get pregnant. Just as in Kenya, Uganda has been crippled by teen girls dropping out of school because of pregnancy. Several agencies working with girls in the region are finding out that many of these girls are impregnated by grown men, men who later abandon these girls.

Pedophilia is rampant in the East African country, Uganda was named the country with the highest alcohol consumption in all of Africa. There is now a rising gun violence and drug problem, which doesn't stop Africans from applauding the most under-developed country for passing their Anti-LGTBQ bill.

Nyash Festival: Galaxy FM Zzina to host Uganda's first curves and shapes party.

Galaxy FM Zzina, one of Uganda's leading entertainment radio stations, is set to host the Nyash Festival at Forest Resort Lweza on the 19th of August.

The festival, which is new in Uganda, promises to be a fun-filled event with music, dance, games and prizes.

The Nyash Festival is a celebration of the beauty and diversity of Ugandan women, especially their curves and shapes.

The festival will feature a Nyash Queen contest, where ladies will showcase their assets and compete for the crown and cash prizes. The festival will also have a Nyash Dance competition, where dancers will show off their skills and win goodies.

The festival will be graced by some of Uganda's top artists and DJs, who will entertain the crowd with their hits and mixes.

The word Nyash is a derogatory word, in West Africa it means;

Which language is nyash?

While "nyash" may have various meanings depending on the context and culture, it is commonly used in Nigerian pidgin English to refer to the buttocks or rear end of a person.

So, in short this festival is to sexualize the bodies of young, Black African women. In a country where they're more than likely to be the victims of rape and sexual assault.

Gender-based violence and no justice, this is oddly from those who claim to be the most moral humans on earth. Clearly they are not.

You will probably say that women are allowing themselves to be disrepsected, this entire festival is about women's butts and rear ends. People are willingly letting them take photos of their breasts and butts, even this video below is sickening.

In Uganda, most children have experienced some form of violence and abuse. More than 8 million children are considered to be vulnerable to harm. Sexual abuse is the most common form of violence, with gender as a major risk factor. Every day, around 26 girls are defiled. Rape is on the increase, rising by 30 per cent from 7,360 reported cases in 2009 to 9,588 in 2013.

Girls are also threatened by child marriage and female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C). Uganda is among the top 25 countries with the highest rates of child marriage. In eastern and north-eastern Uganda, in particular Karamoja and Sebei regions, girls as young as 10 have to endure FGM/C as a rite of passage to womanhood.

Violence and abuse follow children to schools and homes – places where they are supposed to be safe and protected. In 2015, the Uganda Child Helpline (‘Sauti’) received and handled more than 3,000 cases of violence, abuse and neglect of children and in 2016, it registered 238,629 calls where 2,878 were serious cases of VAC that sometimes posed situations of life and death for the children involved.

Children with disabilities are even more at risk of mental, physical and sexual abuse because of discrimination, isolation and lack of access to services. Other groups of acutely vulnerable children include children living on the street, orphans and refugee children.
