Corruption in Uganda
|Corruption by country|
Corruption in Uganda is characterized by grand-scale theft of public funds and petty corruption involving public officials at all levels of society as well as widespread political patronage systems.
Dynamics [ edit ]
There are several high corruption risk areas, such as police, judiciary and procurement. Businesses are particularly vulnerable when bidding public contracts in Uganda because processes are often non-transparent, and under-the-table cash payments are demanded from procurement officers.
Anti-corruption efforts [ edit ]
Officials continue to engage in corrupt practices despite laws and institutional instruments that are in place to prevent and punish corruption.
