Uganda launched a five-year strategy to combat the evil that is hemorrhaging state resources - corruption. Simon Lokodo, Minister of State for Ethics and Integrity, said the government is committed to fighting the malaise. Although Uganda is said to have the best laws and policies to curb corruption, implementation has proved a challenge. The obstacles include low public participation in fighting corruption, limited capacity of the institutions mandated to fight corruption and inadequate coordination among anti-corruption institutions. Transparency International’s 2014 Corruption Perceptions Index saw Uganda drop 10 places from 130th in 2013, scoring 26 out of a possible 100.
