President Yoweri Museveni has been asked to allow the country’s judiciary arm space to do its work and cease dictating how it should run its duties.

At the press briefing UPC’s Lucima reminded the president that it is not upon him to dictate what the judiciary should do and how it should handle its cases.

“We detest Museveni’s attempts to politicize and undermine the independence of the judiciary in the country, trying to cause it act in contrary to the constitution,” Lucima noted.

Lucima said giving bail is within the country’s constitution and that it should be left in the powers of judges who must act independent of the directives of the president.

“I urge all judicial officers to ignore president Museveni and stick to the provisions within the country’s constitution.”

President Museveni observed in his speech that in recent killings, the culprits were arrested and given lenient sentences while others were freed. He revealed that the Government had rearrested them.

The President said that the old Constitution stipulated detention without trial which was abolished in the 1995 Constitution.

He stressed that freedom should prevail but not at the expense of other people’s lives. He emphasized that Ugandans want a strict system to protect their lives and property.
