By Alfred Wasike THE Constitutional Review Commission (CRC) is on course and will deliver its report on time, justice and constitutional affairs minister, Janat Mukwaya has assured Ugandans. Yesterday The Monitor reported that CRC had suspended operations because of lack of funds. President Yoweri Museveni, in his 2002 address to the nation highlighted the importance of the CRC and urged his compatriots to submit their views on how the 1995 Constitution has performed and what they want changed. The CRC has so far received more about 500 memoranda from Ugandans. “I appeal to my fellow Ugandans that the CRC is right on course and we shall deliver its report right on time. I urge all the people to continue submitting their memoranda. It is this Government which set up the CRC and it is this Government which is going to see it through,” Mukwaya told The New Vision yesterday. “There are detractors who don’t want to see Uganda move forward. But I appeal to our people to rise up, go to the CRC and submit their views on what kind of political system they want or anything else they want changed in our Constitution.” she added. The CRC was established in February 2001 with an 18-month life span. It is chaired by a constitutional law expert, Prof. Frederick Ssempebwa. Mukwaya dismissed reports in the local media that the CRC is cash strapped. “CRC is on course. Government will see it through and on time. The law is not watertight. We shall make sure they have enough time”, she said. Dr Higiro Semajege CRC secretary said, they were not worried of the finances. Ends
