The Parliamentary Committee on Human Rights
plans to interact with major Presidential candidates as it investigates
concerns of rights violations during elections.
The Committee was tasked by the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga to take stock of violations that marred the electoral process.
It is expected to report back within a month.
As part of the investigation, the committee
is planning to interact with Presidential candidates, securities agencies,
among the police and the army, as well as victims of the said violations.
Committee Chairperson Janepher Egunyu Nantume told journalists in an interview yesterday that they have made arrangements to meet President Yoweri Museveni as the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) candidate in the just-concluded race.
Also on the list are other candidates;
Patrick Oboi Amuriat, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu and officials of the Uganda
Human Rights Commission.
The MPs are expected to meet the President from Statehouse, while the other candidates will be expected to appear during a committee sitting at Parliament.
She says that any Ugandan who was a victim of the said brutality is free to contact the committee in regards to the violation of the rights.
