The Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon Speaker Kadaga has assured Ugandans that she is more than ready to support any legislation aimed at promoting Human rights and stable families
Addressing the gathering at the 3rd Annual Muslims Human rights conference at Imperial Royale in Kampala on Wednesday organized by Muslim Center for Justice and Law (MCJL), Kadaga said she was only waiting for the Attorney General and line Ministers to present the laws before Parliament.
Court made a number of pronouncements regarding the Marriage Act requiring the Attorney General to remove grounds for divorce which has never been done up to now.
Kadaga called upon MCJL to continue advocating for the same until the concerned parties do the needful
On commencement of Khadi courts, Kadaga asked Muslim leaders to continue involving more parties in government so that they can be implemented
“Parliament cannot handle it alone because it involves a huge budget which needs to be agreed upon by various sectors of Government.”
Umar Nyanzi the president of MCJL expressed a need to have amendments in most of the laws in the country which he said have become obsolete.
“We ask ourselves why Parliament has not given priority to these laws affecting common members of the society”
He went ahead and applauded the Speaker of Parliament for having shown commitment to push their cause forward to ensure that all the required amendments are put in place
Kadhi courts or Kadhi’s courts are a court system that enforce limited rights of inheritance, family, and succession for Muslims.
