The head of the criminal division in the High Court of Uganda, Justice Lameck Mukasa, has said the number of offences attracting a death penalty should be reduced.
“My personal view is that the death sentence should be reserved for cases of murder and other cases where death results from the commission of the crime,” Mukasa said.
He was speaking during a function to mark the World Day Against the Death Penalty, organised by the Foundation for Human Rights Initiative at Nsambya on Wednesday.
