Abstract

Query

Can you please provide an overview of corruption and anti-corruption in Uganda, with a focus on public financial management?

Summary

The Ugandan government has acknowledged that corruption is one of the main challenges facing the country. But recent developments have raise questions on the government’s political will to address it. Several reforms, laws and new institutions to fight corruption have been established. However, in spite of recent investigations and corruption trials, an effective enforcement of the laws in place is still lacking.
