Religious institutions, Culture and State:

Since the enactment of the 1995 Uganda Constitution we have witnessed several incidents that have brought into question the relationship between the state and cultural institutions as well as the state and religious institutions.

Zero Tolerance to Corruption

Corruption is a cancer that is eating up Uganda’s society. Annually, billions of shillings of Uganda’s tax payers’ money and millions of dollars from development partners are lost through corruption.

Defense and Security

Defense and security are key priority areas for any country. A country must assure its citizens of national security and be able to address security threats early including terrorism threats.


Industrialisation is the process in which a country transforms itself from a primarily agricultural society into one based on the manufacturing of goods and services

Minimum Wage

In Uganda today, the fiscal sustainability of the wage-bill; attraction and retention of requisite skills to execute public service functions; productivity and performance; and transparency and fairness in remuneration setting and review, is seriously in question


Extensive and efficient infrastructure is critical for ensuring the effective functioning of the economy, as it is an important factor in determining the location of economic activities and the kinds of activities or sectors that can develop within a country.

Foreign Policy

My government’s strategy in dealing with other nations will be informed by our desire to promote and safeguard national, regional and international peace and security and protect our sovereignty and territorial integrity.


Governance determines who has power, who makes decisions, how other players make their voice heard and how accountability is rendered.
