What are you doing to make sure I don’t disappear?

About 20 women – joined by a few men – have been protesting outside the police headquarters in Uganda’s capital, Kampala, against women being kidnapped, sexually abused and killed for small ransoms.

Godiva Akullo said that she and others pitched up outside police headquarters to challenge them to show that women’s lives matter:

Women from all walks of live are getting kidnapped which is why we’re here. We are a group of women who are sex workers, lawyers, teachers.”

Where are the police when we need to be protected?”
