BY VANANSIO KAKOGOSO
Residents in Rubanda district are demanding for new court premises
that can accommodate people seeking justice.
Rubanda district court is housed in a small, dilapidated building that
was built in 1960s.
When our www.mknewslink.com news website reporter visited Rubanda court, he found suspects seated in
compound with handcuffs waiting to be paraded before magistrate.
The reporter also found all the witnesses, people who want to stand
sureties, observers and relative of the suspects were also seated in
the compound under sunshine.
Some of the people who were found seated outside court premises that
include Jacob Byabagambi from Hamurwa, Jane Mukandinda, Joseph Maguru
expressed disappointment over the size of court premises and this is
what they said.
The Rubanda district Vice Chairman Silver Baguma says that when it
rains, court uses the Rubanda district Rukiiko hall. He however says
that there is need for relevant authorities to construct new court
premises that can accommodate many people.
The Rubanda District Principle Assistant Secretary Bernard Kasangaki
says that as a district they are willing to give land to Judiciary so
that the district can have fully foraged judicial service,
since currently they have only visiting magistrate
