Uganda and Civil Rights

International human rights groups have demanded the release of Kenyan Al-Amin Kimanthi, who was arrested recently on terror charges. The Ugandan government claims he was involved in a bombing in Kampal, which killed 79 people. Human rights groups point out that little actual evidence or clear claims have been brought against him as to why he's being held for murder and terrorism. Human rights groups are convinced it is because he is actually rebelling against unfair law and trial practice in Uganda and the gov wants him silenced. However, it may also be possible that evidence can not be made public until the investigation is complete.
