Uganda: Court releases list of corrupt government officials

At least 100 people have been convicted for corruption and ordered to return more than Shs70b they stole from government and private companies in the last 10 years since the Anti-Corruption Court was created, Daily Monitor has learnt.

However, out of the Shs70b, records show that the office of the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has so far managed to recover only Shs1b.The records also indicate that since 2010, the court has issued compensation orders in 100 case files of which 27 have been followed up. 

One of the compensation cases involved three former top officials of the Ministry of Public Service where court convicted them for various corruption offences and ordered them to jointly compensate government with Shs50b.
