Interacting with a few girls, some got to confess that they disagree to the headache and stress given to them by the younger men/bachelors who keep on changing women like panties.
As for the married men, they can have affairs as much as they want to and as a saying goes ‘all men are dogs,’ which is a result of girls’ thinking so lowly about all men.
However, what should be noted is that in most cases it is the rich men who engage young girls. Take an instance, you will never find a poor or ‘broke’ married man dating a campus girl knowing that at the end of the day, the girl will be asking for money.
Girls understand that if a man is able to provide for his family then he can occasionally make the outsiders happy too. They get their motivation and accomplishments from such affairs.
Speaking to Lillian Nassozi, a third year student at Nkumba University, she says, “Older men are not stressing. They care a lot and treat us like their last born babies. They provide whatever you need without asking funny questions like why and how. They are just too comfortable.”
However, Anita Ashaba, Chimpreports sub-editor disagrees to the idea of university girls having affairs with older men.
“Dating older men is definitely a bad idea especially if the guy is married. That man could possibly be your father- in- law in the near future. Plus it gives one a bad reputation in society; imagine being known for sleeping around with married men who are fit to be fathers,” says Ashaba.
Rita Kirabo, who works with Opportunity Bank tells Chimpreports: “Dating a married man is not good at all. It’s practically breaking someone’s marriage. As someone is in tears, the other is busy having fun which is ugly. Why not get your own man. Because if money, people die of funny diseases and acid.”
Our Chimp Corp Victoria Nazziwa managed to speak to one rich Makerere University student who confessed being in a relationship with a married man and is having fun with her life.
Unlike some of the students at the university, she never gets stress over tuition or money for upkeep.
“I never run out of money to spend or run out of things in my apartment. I know it’s just a game and never lasts that long but I still get to drive a nice car and wear amazing clothes,” she says.
She adds: “I am empowered by Andrew’s (the married man) dislike for his wife, I benefit a lot from his wife’s nagging ways since whenever she’s annoys him, I get something new.”
“It’s amazing how my life is fun and perfect. Honestly speaking, why would I be with a broke guy who is not married but claims to love me? It’s not like we will eat love. I have my needs that have to be catered for so I opt for the married man.”
Dating married men may seem easy and fun but many have realized that it distorts young girl’s futures and in the long run, they end up suffering and some losing integrity which is important in one’s life.
“That is really bad because most married men are HIV positive and are most times difficult and chaotic. When dealing with such men, one has to be extra careful not to annoy the man, anything scandalous can happen,” adds Rebecca Nakigozi, a third year student at Makerere University.
Looked at broadly, the idea of university girls being attracted to married men, traces its roots to the decay of morals in society.
And with the freedom that comes with students living in private apartments and spending the better part of their time partying in nightclubs, they have always fallen prey to older and even married men.
Research conducted by Global Health Action in 2010 showed that majority of students at the prestigious Mbarara University of Science and Technology in southwestern Uganda were “sexually active.”
“1,179 students (60.3 percent of the study population) reported that they were sexually active. Of these, 199 (18.6 percent) did not use contraception in their last sexual encounter. Students currently not in a relationship had higher odds of non-use of contraception (odds ratio 1.8, 95 percent confidence interval 1.2–2.7)” the report showed.
The sexual activeness of University students should be a source of concern for government and other related stakeholders especially in fighting HIV.
The objective of the study was to determine the relationship between non-use of contraception and socio-demographic factors, alcohol consumption, and types of partner(s) among Ugandan university students.
More than half of the world’s population is less than 25 years old and approximately 85 percent of this demographic segment lives in low- or middle-income countries.
The sexual behaviour of such young people, especially with married men, has become a crucial social and public health concern, especially with regard to unintended pregnancies and spread of HIV.
Attending the 5th Joint AIDS Review/7th Partnership Forum Conference at Imperial Royale Hotel in Kampala in 2012, Ethics and Integrity, Minister Simon Lokodo, said government had increased its contribution in the HIV/AIDS response to $65 US dollars in the financial year 2012.
He further said government would add more 100,000 HIV patients on the service of ARV’S so as lives of Ugandans are not left to perish.
Prof. Vinand Nantulya, Chairman Uganda Aids Commission (UAC) also recently called upon leaders at all levels to play their role in sensitizing HIV/AIDS in Uganda.
“I urge cultural, religious and political leaders to get back in the field because there is a new HIV battle that has increased the rate of HIV/AIDS prevalence in Uganda,” he said.
“We need to strengthen the health systems in Uganda by focusing on all the districts especially the remote villages where there is still a high rate of HIV/AIDS,”
The bio-social gap, explained as the early onset of puberty and increasing age of marriage, has widened in most low-income countries.
This has led to an increase in pre-marital sexual activity, which exposes vulnerable youth to the risk of unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections (STI).
“Pre-marital sexual activity seems to be increasing among university students in Asia and Africa as a result of many factors, such as rapid urbanisation and exposure to mass media (5–8),” said Global Health Action.
Nearly half of Uganda’s inhabitants are below the age of 15, and 20 percent are between 15 and 25 (9). Poor mental health, sexual coercion, low trust in others, and increased university enrolment are associated with risky sexual behaviour among university students (10–12).
