Ugandan leader calls for eye-for-an-eye-style sentences after nephew murdered

Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni has said he wants courts to hand out eye-for-an-eye-style sentences for all murder convicts, to help stem soaring violent crime that claimed the life of his nephew last week. Ugandans complain that most crimes go unsolved because police are corrupt and not interested in investigating cases involving ordinary citizens, although security officials deny this. "We need to work on the courts," Museveni said in a statement posted on his official social media accounts late on Tuesday.
