Stanley Ntagali, the Archbishop of Church of Uganda has asked government to enact stringent laws to stop human and child trafficking through foreign adoptions.
According to the Bishop, there is need to enact laws that ensure legitimate and fair labor practices to regulate foreign companies recruiting Ugandans.
In his Christmas message delivered this afternoon at Namirembe. Ntagali said some Ugandans give away children through foreign adoptions in exchange for money, which he said requires stringent laws to protect the minors from this kind of practice.
He said foreigners with money come into the country and easily adopt poor children but no one is sure where they are taking them and what they do with them.
Ntagali said he had also heard horrifying stories of human trafficking where young men and girls are lured to other countries with a false promise of employment and money only to find themselves being forced into prostitution and slavery.
The Archbishop said there is legitimate foreign labour aka â€œKyeyoâ€ but warned that if something sound too good to be true it is probably not true.
He also advised against the legalization of abortion, which is being pushed for by some NGOs and other Western organizations.

He also expressed concern on the raising cases of Domestic Violence and brutality against children.
