The courts of law in Uganda have received more than 500 cases of animal rights violations in one year, and most of them were convicted although it is still needed to do more to decrease these cases.
Speaking at the closing ceremony of a six-day joint conference organized by the Uganda Wildlife Authority and the Lusaka Agreement task force at the Protea Hotel in Entebbe, Judicial officials from African countries said all govt should be united to see such violations reduced.
They said the judiciary should not have any mercy on anyone violating animal rights so that it may work as an example to those involved in similar activities.
Keko Joan, who works in the court for the perpetrators of animal rights violations at the Buganda Road Court in Kampala, Uganda, expressed concern.
In the same way, Salim Sammu who also works with the same court in Tanzania shared advice on how to fight against wildlife rights violations.
