Uganda has today been ranked the most brutal area where justice and rule of law are abused and violated by the sitting government. The rankings titled ‘The world justice project rule of law index 2020’ crowned Uganda 117 globally out of 128 countries. The survey found that security forces are the pioneers of this disrespect for the rule of law as they heavily indulge in high scale repression on mainly political opponents of the Museveni regime.

In East Africa, Rwanda topped the best in adherence to the rule of law and globally ranked at 37, followed by Tanzania at 93 and Kenya at 102.
The Washington made survey was hinged on about 8 factors namely; absence of corruption, constraints on government powers, fundamental rights, order and security, civil justice, regulatory enforcement, and criminal justice.
The report comes just days after the Uganda Law Society and Human rights watch too issued cautionary observations tasking the Ugandan regime to check the conduct of its men in the forces. Security forces in Uganda have been at the helm of tormenting and terrorising civilians under the guise of implementing covid guidelines. Also in the just concluded polls, dozens of people were killed and scores injured at the hands of men in security. This perhaps is what inspired the statistics that Washington came up with to put Uganda at the helm.
