There is a common ‘adolescent’ saying that “virginity is not dignity but a lack of opportunity.” This has lured many teenage girls to engage in sex.
However, the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda (COU), Dr. Steven Kazimba, has started a campaign to change the myth. Kazimba has promised to give a cash reward to any school-going girl who is a virgin.
According to a story compiled by KFM, Kazimba made the remarks during his pastoral visit to some schools in the Wakiso district ahead of celebrations to mark 50 years of the diocese of Kampala.
The girls will undergo an assessment by a team of highly respected born-again women well versed in proving that one is a virgin.
