“I spent part of my time last evening at Kigo Prison where Hon. Michael Kabaziguruka Micheal the MP Nakawa is remanded. I was joined by the FDC Party President Gen. Mugisha Muntu, Hon. Centinary Robert, Hon. Nzoghu William and some of his friends.
The Revelations at Kigo were so pathetic, the Prison now accommodates far above it’s original capacity. Accused persons and convicts remain Ugandans whose fundamental human rights must be observed. The congestion not only in Kigo but also in other Prisons in Uganda must be checked.
Decongesting our Prisons through sentencing reforms and rehabilitation programs must be taken up. And as a matter of fact, there should be a design of a series of early intervention measures that allow the police to use instant measures or sanctions to deal with anti-social behavior without criminalizing our young people unnecessarily.
