NAGURU CHILDREN REMAND HOME FACING CONGESTION

The Naguru Children remand home is very congested with over 160 children and there is urgent need to decongest the facility. This was revealed by the Justice, Law and Order Sector (JLOS) criminal working group during one of its routine inspection visits to the remand home. The working group had previously arranged with the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development to decongest the remand home but efforts were futile. The Executive Director of the Legal Aid Clinic for the Law Development Center (LAC), Mrs. Theodora B Webale called on Legal Aid Service Providers (LASPs) within the network as well as other partners to engage in the venture of decongesting the remand home.

    Following an internal reflection within the Land and Equity Movement in Uganda (LEMU) in December 2013 on its role in land rights promotion, the organization realized that, whilst it works to build the capacity of land administrators such as the clans, the police and the courts, when it came to mediation work, it undertook it directly with the parties and unintentionally had been undermining the clans. LEMU had previously worked with clans only as witnesses and meeting mobilisers. This reflection also coincided with the Northern Uganda Land Platform (NULP) research on “uprooting bad faith: the quest for appropriate land dispute resolution in Northern Uganda” in October, 2013 which recommended that “NGOs are advised to use their efforts and resources to reinforce existing traditional and state institutions, rather than create justice alternatives that compete with these long-term actors”.
