From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Prostitution in Uganda is illegal in Uganda however prostitutes operate freely in Kampala city centre.[1] In 2003 Ugandan authorities ordered sex workers to pay a tax of 9,000 (£2.63) Ugandan shilling in order to operate in Malaba.[2] Also in 2003 Ugandan MP's met sex workers who were concerned about "police harassment" and claiming that it was unfair that police officers were arresting sex workers while they waited for clients.[3] A study of teachers in Kampala showed that teachers were turning to prostitution to increase their income, a sex worker can earn around 1.5 million Ugandan shillings (£439) per month, where as this would be a yearly wage for a secondary school teacher.[4] Child prostitution is also a problem in Uganda.[5]
