Abstract:

Source: US Census Bureau long-term political stability, with little indication so far of how, or even when, Museveni will be replaced. Museveni, who earned his reputation as a freedom fighter and fierce opponent of Milton Obote s deadly regime, was initially welcomed as a reformer. ...These disparities are sharpened by an ethno-linguistic divide, the north comprising Nilotes (among them the Acholi) and the south comprising the Bantu-speaking majority, which was the preferred group of British colonial policy. Although substantial progress has been made in resettling the -mn people displaced over the course of the conflict, and the LRA is said to be on the verge of disintegration, the war s legacy in the north will be difficult to overcome.

The president s popularity and political capital has diminished significantly in recent years but his grip on power remains firm. ...

...core Views Uganda s economy is poised to grow strongly over the next few years, supported by an increasingly buoyant consumer sector and major capital investment projects in the energy and transport sectors. Monetary authorities in Uganda will maintain a hawkish bias over the coming quarters amid continued currency weakness and concerns over a ramp-up in pre-election spending. ...Monetary authorities in Uganda will maintain a hawkish bias over the coming quarters amid continued currency weakness and concerns over a ramp-up in pre-election spending.
