This study "The legal and institutional framework in the fight against corruption:
The case law' was carried out in Uganda, with specific aims to: find out the cause of
corruption in the existing institutional framework in Uganda; examine impact of
corruption on the performance of institutions in Uganda; identifY the loopholes and
excesses of the performance of the anticorruption agencies and to suggest ways to
counter these loopholes and excesses. To comprehend this, the study reviewed
literature from various scholars on the specific aims as well as different laws from
different countries that govern anti-corruption within the public as well as the
private sector. This was done through use of a qualitative design in which the
researcher relied on book review and interviewing a few members from the office of
the IGG, Anti Corruption Col!lt, Directorate of Ethics and Integrity, Parliament,
The study findings indicate that, the cause of corruption despite the existing
institutional framework includes; greed, nepotism, sectarianism and above all
autocratic tendencies. The challenges of corruption are noted to include poor
coordination and facilitation, incompetent and corrupt staff, lack of independence of
the anti-corruption agencies, lack of political will and zeal of the public and po~r
enforcement. The impact of corruption was established to be reduced foreign
investment, discriminatory distribution of services, political instability and poverty,
to which the suggested recommendations can counter these excesses.
It is concluded that, the anti-corruption agencies if not left to be free of the political
will of those in power, anticorruption measures will be countered by favoritism.
