Our Constitution is very weak – MP

Kabarole. Fort Portal Municipality MP Alex Ruhunda has blamed Uganda’s underdevelopment on the 1995 Constitution.
Mr Ruhunda said most of the articles in the Constition are not applicable in our current situation, hence a hindrance to the country’s development
“Our 1995 constitution is the most stumbling block to the development of this country. If you look at all the articles they have limits which hinder our development,” Mr Ruhunda told journalists in Fort Portal Town last week.
“Uganda has no capacity to implement the 1995 Constitution. For example, we cannot finance the LC I elections as established by the law. We must agree that it was above us as the country,” he said, adding that the Judicial Service Commission majorly depends on donor funding, meaning that our institutions cannot finance the judicial system.
The MP made the remarks during the closure of a two-day safety and security training facilitated by Human Rights Network for Journalists –Uganda.
