Some women wearing the hijab headscarf had their clothes torn off by gangs of attackers. One woman who wore the conservative niqab veil, that covers the entire head and face, reported that men grabbed at it in an attempt to tear it off her face.” Still, government officials squarely put the blame on women and according to one member of parliament sexual attacks are inevitable. “[A]lot our youth can’t afford marriage, so it is only normal for some harassment to take place.” Wow! And we thought Uganda hated its women. |METimes|
