It is believed that the Ugandan police officers have a reputation of being quite rough and tough so the gesture was to show their softer side and stand for the campaign against gender-based violence.

The campaign to end gender-based violence in Uganda took place recently.

The campaign itself lasted for sixteen days as activists protested against gender-based violence. The demonstration by the officers was carried out as a way to uniquely mark the end of the campaign.

The event was tagged “Walk A Mile In Her Shoes”

The event was dubbed “Walk A Mile In Her Shoes” and it was organised by the Gender Ministry
