After being denied access to the said safe houses that house torture chambers where human rights violations take place, the furious legislators who sit on the Human rights committee invited the Uganda Human rights commission (UHRC) boss and his team and the Internal Security Organization (ISO) chief Col Kaka Bagyenda for questioning.
MPs on have however criticized the Uganda Human Rights Commission led by Chairperson Med Kaggwa, for what they say is an apathetic response to human rights violations. MP Raphael Magyezi said Parliament should hold the Commission to account for “abetting crime”.
Legislators including Kyadondo East MP Kyagulanyi Robert, Mityana’s Municipality Francis Zaake, Raphael Magyezi, Bwino Kyakulaga and Simeo Nsubuga eloquently said the UHRC is toothless because it’s always reluctant on matters of human rights violations in the country.
The UHRC boss found hard time to explain his intervention in curbing this sky rocketing human rights violations which lies in his mandate. “Your commission is impotent, you can’t bite”- said the Legislators
