A Guardian outrage

Police would not have failed to investigate the murders of the dozens of women kidnapped last year – resulting in the release of suspects for lack of evidence.

Isn’t that terrible? Releasing suspects for lack of evidence?

  1. I think you were misled by the awkward syntax; my reading is that police failed to investigate various crimes therefore no evidence was gathered on which to hold suspects so no trial, no justice.

  2. Uganda only tolerates women’s bodies when there is money to be made

    No. Ugandans only tolerate women’s bodies when there is money to be made. That’s why the Guardian wants them all to come here, for some reason.

  3. “Tourism brings in about $1.4bn to Uganda annually – nearly 10% of GDP. “

    Really? Good lord, I can think of better places to holiday in…

  4. Uganda only tolerates women’s bodies when there is money to be made

    The ‘only’ is in the wrong place. Surely they mean “Uganda tolerates women’s bodies only when there is money to be made”.

    Pet peeve of mine.

  5. Police would not have failed to investigate the murders of the dozens of women kidnapped last year – resulting in the release of suspects for lack of evidence.

    If the police didn’t investigate, surely there would be no suspects to release?

    Anyway, I am perfectly prepared to take Ms Akumu’s word that Uganda is a misogynistic hellhole. I hope she also accepts that it is best if its hellishness is kept to itself.

  6. “Even more troubling is that the notion of sex constituting rape if a man “reneges” on a promise of marriage is not in the penal code.”

    This is ‘troubling’?

    Are they suggesting that consensual sex based on a promise such as “I’ll marry you” should be considered rape? How about “I’ll love you for ever”? If a man reneges on that promise should that also mean all the previously consensual sex in a relationship gets reclassified as rape?

  7. dunno how that ended up on the wrong thread. It was supposed to be the one about promises and marriage and rape and stuff.

  8. I think we should bring Ugandans over to the UK to see our appalling levels of poverty.

    That’d sober them up.

  9. Yes,terrible – once we get acquittals in trials, the thing goes from bad to worse. Surely Uncle Joe’s system of show trials with invented evidence is better.

  10. English as a second language.

    “about $1.4bn to Uganda annually”

    The dollar goes a long way in Uganda.

  11. What a load of rambling Gladrag cockrot.

    What have the fat bags got to do with it? Are they being celebrated or condemned? Both or neither? If I cared I might read deep enough to find out if only the hack had effective writing skills to convey that or any other point.

    Some women appear in Fat Bag Shows while others get kidnapped–by whom? If you are talking Boko Haram that is very different than individual scumbags.

    The whole article is just a ramblerant. To Hell with Uganda and the Gladrag is the only worthwhile conclusion to draw.

    Isn’t that what the UN special reports into British poverty are for?
