The State House Anti Corruption Unit (SH-ACU) has so far, since inception, arrested 365 greedy mafias that hinder the country’s development through corruption and related vices.

According to our sources from State House, since February 2022, the number of those arrested and charged has increased from 349 to 365. Those convicted from 45 to 48.

Source adds that the arrests conducted involved billions of government money misappropriated in the previous month.

Before she handed over the mantle to Brig Henry Isoke earlier this year, former Anti Corruption Unit boss, Col Edith Nakalema revealed to our reporter that the Unit has registered a huge success against corruption and has been able to recover, over UGX30 billion tax payers’ money through prosecutions, and other measure used to compel corrupt officials to refund embezzled public funds.


The Unit has so far investigated different public servants for graft, including members of parliament, accounting officers, security personnel, directors of several government agencies and commissions among other gov’t big fish.

In addition to the above, the Unit has also ensured the safe return of over 600 Ugandans stranded after being trafficked to Arab countries. It has also conclusively investigated over 10,000 cases and interdicted over 200 government workers from public offices.

SH-ACU was established under Article 99(4) of the constitution of Uganda, which gives the President executive powers to either directly or indirectly perform his duties or through officers subordinate to him.

Launched on 10th December 2018, SH-ACU coordinates with all constitutionally mandated agencies to ensure that complaints raised by citizens are resolved.

The Unit also acts as a link between H.E. the President, citizens and Anti- Corruption agencies in relation to the Anti-Corruption issues.
