Museveni Insists On Removing Bail For Capitol Offenders

President has insisted on his move to remove bail right to capitol offenders. In his address on Friday, he says he is going to discuss with the attorney general to see how it can stop immediately.

‘‘I will not accept the issue of bond by police in cases like this. I’m going to discuss with the Attorney General to see how we stop this nonsense. On the issue of bail, we are continuing to discuss this with stakeholders and nobody will stop us,’’ he said.

”How can we have a system like this? First of all it annoys people because for them they may not know the difference between bail and being released. The public gets annoyed,’’ he added.

Museveni has been stuck on this point despite the opposition from parliamentary members. Even some of the NRM MPs are not in support of this move. However, he says their delay to agree with him says a lot about them as MPs.

‘‘I saw the other day- MPs walked out of parliament because somebody has not got bail. These political people who do nothing about the victims but all attention on the victims- we shall know them by their fruits,’’ Museveni said.

Meanwhile, he promised Ugandans that the government will account for those that died during November riots in 2020.

‘‘I want to assure Ugandans that we shall not be deflected by political schemes. We shall ensure accountability, even for these people that died during the November 18/19 riots. That report should be audited and concluded,’’ he demanded.
