HUMAN RIGHTS

KAMPALA - Uganda has joined the rest of the World to mark the International Human Rights Day. Presiding over at the national celebrations held at Railyway grounds in Kampala, the Chief Justice, Bart Katureebe cautioned against violations of human rights by security agencies, noting that this dragged the country to Idi Amin’s era.

Every December 10, Uganda joins the rest of the world to commemorate human rights day. This year’s celebrations are running under the theme: “Get up, stand up for rights.”

The date was chosen to honour the United Nations General Assembly's adoption and proclamation, on December 10, 1948, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

The day’s activities which started with a match through Kampala attracted several dignitaries among others human rights defenders, diplomats, MPs and security officials.

“So we as a country, we must see to it that we build strong institutions that will recognise the inherent dignity of each one of us because if one of us suffers indignity, we ought to rise to the occasion to defend that person,” Katureebe appealed.

The UHRC chairperson Med Kaggwa, basing on the reports by the commission and other human rights institutions in the country, regretted incidents and reports of human rights violations the country continued to witness.
