Commission africaine des droits de l'homme et des peuples

Ouganda et Kenya: Mission de promotion, 1998

Mécanisme spécial: .Rapporteur Spécial sur les Prisons, les Conditions de Détention et l’Action Policière en Afrique

le commissaire: Emmanuel Victor Oware Dankwa.

The mission took place 12-21 July, 1998 and was conducted by Commissioner E.V.O. Dankwa. The general purpose of this promotion mission was: to promote Human and Peoples' Rights and in particular: (a) To collect documents, disseminate information, encourage national and local institutions concerned with human and peoples' rights and, should the case arise, give its views or make recommendations to Govemments; (Art. 5).

Long trial process occurs both in civil and criminal cases, and it results partly from insufficient number of judges and magistrates. Appointment of more judges is under consideration.The Constitution guarantees freedom of assembly (Art. 29) and the right to influence others to share similar views. It will, therefore, be wrong for the police to disrupt meetings of the opposition, and we have been cautioning them to desist from so doing.

It was in Nairobi that the Charter was adopted, and so a leading role in its implementation will generally be expected of Kenya.
