I have often watched the procedural errors by police officers when effecting arrest of suspects. The recent arrest of FDC Women League leader Ingrid Turinawe and her counterpart, Ms Hamida Nassimbwa, raised questions.
Nassimbwa was, in the course of her arrest, stripped, although television cameras rightly protected her dignity. Nassimbwa’s predicament and what other women protesters go through call for legal procedural order. (more…)

National statistics indicate that an average Ugandan woman gives birth to seven children. However, in some areas such as Gulu, the fertility rate is higher – at 7.4, meaning women there and possibly other districts give birth to more children than they should.
