Uganda CDF to Special Investigations Branch: "pull up your socks"
here. At the ceremony, the Chief of Defence Forces, General Wilson Mbasu Mbadi, criticized the country's civilian courts for interfering with the military court's ability to process cases in a timely fashion. Uganda's military courts regularly exercise jurisdiction over civilians accused of weapons offenses, even though human rights jurisprudence strongly disfavors military trials of civilians and the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights is understood to bar it absolutely.
