KAYIHURA’S POLICE OFFICER ON UAH REACTS TO ARTICLE 79 OF THE CONSTITUTION

‘I had earlier decided not to communicate on this forum but thanks to you for doubting the legal knowledge of my boss-you have forced me to come back. I realise it’s your knowledge of the Uganda laws that is lacking. You need to know that there are different laws in this country. Article 79 of the constitution is particular on one type of la-Acts of Parliament. There are statutory instruments which are laws not made by parliament but by a person or body authorised to do so under an Act of Parliament. For instance Ministers in government can make statutory instruments-these are laws!, KCCA has made bye-laws-these are laws!, Organisations also have laws in their respective constitutions and regulations governing both their operations and relationships between the members of the organisation. Thus the IGP’s remarks are not in anyway contrary to what Article 79 of the constitution provides. Party constitutions also have laws!. Interpreting 79 to mean that it covers all the laws is to display ignorance about the various laws applicable in a country.’—Musiimenta Immaculate.

“Political party constitutions [read NRM] are part of the body of law in this country” — IGP Gen. Kale Kayehura
