I was having my lunch in a some restaurant in town this afternoon, when A friend started a discussion on what some of our female University students in Kampala have turned themselves into. While parents spend lots of money to ensure their daughters are comfortable and graduate with flying colours, their children have a different agenda.
There was this particular case of a young girl whose mother rented a 2-bedroom room for her in Kampala. My friend, said that he came to know this week that this student slept with 5(five) guys at the same time and was still begging for more. She is always high on hard drugs. And, the mother, back in the village has been boasting of her daughter, who is studying at Makerere University. Oh, so pathetic.
Sadly to say, many of these young girls have become international prostitutes and seriously hooked on drugs. I mean what I am saying. And many people in Kampala can bear me witness. Some of the mushrooming universities attended by the students lack hostel facilities and the students are forced to rent accommodation thereby according them too much freedom and privacy which they are not matured enough to handle.
These issues also involves our boys. Some have become drug addicts, school dropouts and they still collect tuition from their parents.
Parents need to pay regular unexpected visit to their children and monitor them via phone calls at odd hours to find out where they are and what they are up to. If you are a parent, you must never cease to pray for your children. And, if you are not sure of child’s behaviour, keep him or her close to you.
