The purpose of this study is to analyse the effectiveness of the Uganda Human Rights Commission UHRC), which possesses judicial powers vis-à-vis the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice of Ghana (CHRAJ) and the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) which do not
possess such powers. The difference notwithstanding, all the three have been rated as the best national
institutions in Africa. Due to time and space constraints, one will focus specifically with the mandates of
the three commissions and in particular, on the different or distinct mandates assigned to them, namely,
that of CHRAJ to deal with corruption, that of SAHRC to deal with economic, cultural and social rights
and UHRC of dealing with torture matters and generally of constituting a tribunal. This study was motivated by the fact that Lesotho will be setting up a national institution in 2008 and one would like to
draw lessons from these institutions and pick up elements that could best suit Lesotho.
