Youth especially students who are home due to the current lockdown have been urged to stay focused and avoid things that can ruin their education and future careers.
The call was made by Head of Community Policing department ACP Anatoli Muleterwa over the weekend, while meeting with selected student’s leaders at Katwe Primary school in a holiday outreach programme organized by a local NGO Integrated Youth Development Organization (YIDO) which focuses on fight against crime in schools.
“Avoid bad peer groups, which could entice you into using drugs, alcoholism, concentrate and study, use the time at home to read your books, this is a time for self-reflection” Muleterwa said.
He also called upon young girls to avoid engaging in sexual activities which could lead to early pregnancies and contraction of sexual transmitted diseases, be assertive and avoid temptations.
Muleterwa urged the youth to always report to police and seek guidance where they find challenges.
