THE head of department of monitoring and treaties at the Human Rights Commission, Nathan Byamukama has blamed most districts in Uganda for failing to put in place strong human rights committees to monitor human rights work, reports James Bakunzi. He said the commission’s work was difficult because there was lack of coordination. He was addressing over 450 LCs and opinion leaders of Kawempe division at a meeting held at Teddy Social Centre in Kyebando, the Division recently. Byamukama said only Apac and Kampala districts had formed strong committees. “We are encouraging districts to put in place strong committees. These committees should report and document the events taking place in district and thus make the commission’s work easier,” he said. Prossy Nassali, a member of Kampala district human rights committee who represented the Rt. Rev. Bishop Samuel Balagadde Sekadde urged leaders to sensitise the people about their rights. She said many atrocities were happening in their localities but were not reported. Ends
