President Museveni has insisted on introducing legislation in Parliament whose effect will be to scrap the constitutional right to bail for certain offences. Mr Museveni told NRM party MPs during a caucus retreat at State House, Entebbe, on Tuesday that the proposed law, which several MPs have already promised to oppose, is intended to ensure peace and stability. The President said unless the government prevails over demonstrators and criminals, there will not be development in the country. His proposal would see people accused of the as-yet-undefined crime of economic sabotage, participating in demonstrations, committing murder, defilement, rape and treason denied bail. We need development in the country which can only be achieved through a stable country. A country that is free from demonstrators, President Museveni reportedly said. We have to urgently work on the law by putting such people in incarceration for six months and I need that report, Mr Museveni reportedly said. Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi was tasked by the caucus to head the sub-committee that is studying the pros and cons of the controversial proposal.
