Uganda Defence and Security Report 2015

Uganda Defence and Security Report 2015

BMI View: In recent years, the size of the Uganda People's Defence Force (UPDF) and the country's armsprocurement have grown significantly, manifesting itself in a record breaking budget for defence andsecurity for 2015/16. This primarily reflects the continued growing role of the army in Uganda's politicallandscape, the importance of its role in regional combat and peacekeeping missions, as well as the need tomodernize and improve its military capabilities in general. In addition, Uganda is on a quest to become aregional power and an arms race with Sudan will continue to drive procurement. As such, we expectimports into Uganda, which currently lacks its own military-industrial base, to steadily increase for theforeseeable future.

With a currently underdeveloped and limited defence industry, Uganda is heavily reliant on procurementsfrom foreign countries to meet the demands of its expanding armed forces. Uganda has important securitycooperation ties to the US, and is also dependent upon states such as China, Russia, Belarus and CzechRepublic for military equipment. Some imports are alleged to have been obtained through unorthodox andsometimes undisclosed channels.
