On the  27-September of this year President Museveni  renewed his decade-old push to scrap bail for suspected capital offenders, prompting constitutional and political experts to warn that the move could boomerang since it threatens the presumption of a suspect’s innocence until proven guilty*

The  Democratic Party  through its its National Executive Council (NEC)  that sat yesterday cameup with a resolution aiming to protect article 23(6)a, b and c of the constitution from being attacked by the President and wrote  latter which they delivered  to the Electoral Commission seeking to motion the right of citizens to ask for a referendum.

In the latter DP continues that removing the right to bail  or to apply for bail contravenes the laws of natural justice, one is condemned guilty before trial.
With this, these  strongly believe that the people of Uganda should determine whether or not the right to bail is scrapped.

Following the latter  these also will traverse the country to gather at least two million signatures of registered voters petitioning the electoral commission to organise a referendum regarding the question of bail whereafter court will be petitioned to bar Parliament from discussing the matter that is scheduled for a referendum
