Government has been challenged to put in force the Anti-Tobacco Law that was passed by parliament last year.
The Executive Director Uganda Health Communications Alliance; a civil society organization advocating for health, Richard Baguma says, more Ugandans are victims of tobacco smoking because government has not fully enforced the law.
He outlines a number of diseases that result from tobacco use ranging from breathing difficulties in infants to cancers of all forms.
Baguma says the period of six months that parliament gave traders and producers of tobacco and the related products to sell off their stock and has elapsed but Government has not taken any action.
