was too long and cruel for an accused to be brought to court to prove their innocence.
But the new amendment stipulates 180 days and 60 days in the constitution of Uganda
1995. How has the law on trail been appreciated by the courts of law? This question

course independent of other variable by observing supreme constitutionality of law
