Assesement Of Juvenile Delinquency Under The Laws Of Uganda; Case Study Of Naguru Remand Home

Abstract

The study was carried out in order to assess the effectiveness of juvenile delinquency under the

Laws of Uganda using Naguru Remand home as case study in Kampala district. The study

objectively sought to identify the different ways how juvenile offenders are handled in relation to

the law in Uganda and to establish the possible measures that can be put in place to curb juvenile

delinquency in Uganda.

Data was collected using interviews and questionnaires accompanied by secondary sources by

extracting information regarding the right to bond by juvenile offenders, by reading newspapers,

journals, text books plus the already existing work on internet and magazines.

In findings it established that, family factors which have an influence on offending include; the

level of parental supervision, the way parents discipline a child, parental conflict or separation.

Criminal parents or sibling, parent abuse or neglect and the quality of the parent-child

relationship. Children brought up by lone parents are more likely to start offending them those

who live with two natural parents, whoever once the attachment a child feels towards their

parent(s) and the level of parental supervision are taken into account, children in single parent

families are no more likely to offend than others.

It is recommended that government should enact stringent laws prohibiting importation of guns

to arm children. Instead government should establish more learning centers which can take and

absorb all street children to learn various skills through various vocations courses from which

they may be oriented to becoming useful future citizens who will positively contribute to the economic and social development of this country.
