Back in December, a supplement to Uganda’s Daily Monitor published an article outlining a proposed constitution for the Ugandan arm of the group.

In that article, Ian Ortega wrote: “This constitution drafted in the year of the Pandemic will for generations to come define the meaning of austerity.”

Some parts of the his “constitution” hit out at girlfriends asking their boyfriends for money.

“Any daughter of Eve that asks for money shall be treated as an illegal immigrant and be labelled; ‘not wife material,’” he wrote.

He went on say that “a member must feel no shame whatsoever in rejecting any monetary request presented to him.”

This includes requests for money for transport or airtime.
