Kabale, (UG): Graduates from Makerere University College Education and external studies have blamed lapse in the in rule of law and access to justice in Uganda to corruption.

The graduates sounded the blame yesterday (Monday) while receiving their certificates of Administrative law at Kabale District Headquarters in Kabale Municipality. Administrative law is one of the external study programs offered by Makerere University to enhance the career development of both public and privately employed servants.

Balaba Atuhaire, Peace Kirabo and Jovitah Niwagaba who spoke to DailyExpress said that Uganda’s judicial system is currently threatened by corruption which has increased the case blocks in all levels of court.

They said that in the trial to solicit bribes from victims of crime, people normally delay to receive fairness and justice which has increased case backlogs in courts. They also added that corruption in the judicial system directly undermines the rule of law and human rights.

Handing over the certified certificates to 25 graduates after completing a three months short course, the Kabale District Inspector of Schools Wilberforce Nabasa asked the graduates to ensure that the skills acquired through training are employed to solve public grievances to achieve effective service delivery.”

You must deploy the skills and knowledge attained to transform your communities through conflict resolution” Nabasa says.

The Kigezi Sub-region program coordinator for Makerere University College Education and external studies Judith Kiconco said that Makerere University is committed to ensuring that people especially in the public service acquire the required knowledge and skills to solve public problems which will in the long run solve the problem of case backlogs in courts of law.

”As Makerere University, we are committed to decentralizing services to our people from the main campus in Kabale to ensure proper service delivery” Ms Kiconco said.
