Uganda: HRW highlights corruption inertia

Human Rights Watch (HRW) on 21 October released a 63-page report, ‘Letting the Big Fish Swim’, which details how the Ugandan government has failed to hold to account senior officials implicated in the theft and diversion of public funds. 
According to the report, no high-ranking government official, minister or political appointee has ever served a prison sentence, despite investigations into numerous corruption scandals over the years. This is despite repeated official pledges to eradicate corruption and an array of anti-corruption institutions.
