See why policemen are wearing high heels in Uganda

In an effort to kick against gender violence in Uganda, police officers in the country walked around the city in high heels.
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 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 dubbed “Walk A Mile In Her Shoes” and it was organised by the Gender Ministry.

Watch the video showcasing the event below.
