[Monitor] I wish to respond to President Museveni's missive on torture. On May 15, the President wrote to the Uganda People's Defence Forces (UPDF), the Uganda Police Force (UPF) and other security agencies all of which fall under his direct command and supervision. I will first deal with two aspects of that missive. He glibly argued that torture used to be applied under African customary practices, but he did not distinguish or explain the fact that torture was not always indiscriminately applied to every one suspe

A newly formed civil society called Civil Society Constitution Agenda (CiSCA) has called for dialogue between the ruling Patriotic Front and the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) to ease political tension in the country. Zambia has recently slipped into political division with the opposition UPND refusing to recognise the election of President Edgar Lungu. In a statement, CiSCA states that there is no substitute to sincere dialogue between the ruling PF and the opposition UPND. CiSCA further believes the pre-condition of recognition of the presidency by the UPND being suggested by the PF leadership should essentially be the outcome of a dialogue process and not the basis for the two parties to engage in dialogue. The consortium believes it is imperative that the nation aims to move towards sustainable peace and stability through genuine dialogue. CiSCA says political parties, citizens and other stakeholders should not put pre-conditions to dialogue on national matters but should instead develop a selfless desire to find local solutions to national challenges through inclusive consultative processes. The consortium thinks that it is unfortunate that the PF government seem to have substituted dialogue with intimidation, suppression and intolerance to those perceived to be opposed to its establishment. CiSCA further states that the prevailing atmosphere is threatening Zambia’s democracy, eroding the rule of law and grossly undermining good governance.
