The cultural institution has registered 600 cases of teenage pregnancies in Arua, Terego, Maracha, Madi-Okollo and Yumbe since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Ismael Tuku, the Prime Minister of the Lugbara Cultural Institution, says that unfortunately, one out of ten cases registered is the result of incest, which is an abomination.

Cue out…………………. not a party to that.”//

He was speaking at the launch of the Lugbara anthem in Arua city on Wednesday. 

Moses Mandebo, the Information Officer for Lugbara Kari Institution, says that currently, the cultural institution can’t punish those involved in incest because the punishments were scrapped on grounds of human rights.
