Kanyeihamba's Commentaries on Law, Politics and Governance

  • Justice Professor Dr. George W. Kanyeihamba is one of the leading jurists in the field of constitutional and human rights law. In the last three decades he has been a key protagonist in the metamorphosis that has seen Uganda emerge from tyranny and lawlessness to the present constitutional and political order. These essays address three thematic areas namely (i) Constitutional theory and practice - including anecdotes on the making of the 1995 Constitution (ii) Human rights and (iii) governance and development. The work illustrates the hurdles met in the implementation of the 1995 Constitution arising out of constricted political spaces; excessive powers of the executive; a weak and gullible legislature as well as a threatened but resilient Judiciary.
