US Sets New Conditions for Government Funding

The US government has set new conditions for the government of Uganda to benefit from the USAID funding.
Some of the new conditions are intensifying the fight against corruption, improving the retention of the girl child in schools, improving on civil liberties, and providing economic freedom.
In order to assist government to achieve these conditions, the American government has sent two experts from the US Department of Justice, to monitor Uganda's progress in meeting the new conditions.
The mandate of the two American experts will be under the newly created Anti-Corruption Country Threshold (ACT) project.
Kevin Curnow, the ACT project Chief of Party, says that Uganda must show a strong commitment to compete for the Funds intended for the fight against poverty.

The project today donated office equipment worth 1.6 billion shillings to the CID, IGG, the ministry of Ethics and Integrity agencies and the PPDA. The equipment includes 106 laptops, 34 fax machines, scanners and video cameras.
The CID Deputy Director, Hajji Balimwoyo, is optimistic that the equipment will help the department monitor cases involving forgeries and falsification of documents.
