On 16th August 2022, the Head of State House Anti Corruption Unit Brig.Gen. Henry Isoke delivered a lecture to over 300 Secondary Sch. Head Teachers from the regions of Lango, Acholi & West Nile at National Leadership Institute (NALI), Kyankwanzi. The lecture focused on the role they can play in the fight against corruption.

He urged them to take the corruption cases in their schools seriously, for example sexual abuse, land grabbing of Gov’t school lands among others. Also, he advised them to report these cases to the anti-corruption agencies like Police and the Resident District Commissioners – RDCs’ of their respective districts.

Isoke asked the head teachers,”Instill strong ethical principles & values in your students in order to build them into the next exemplary leaders and also ensure that they despise those individuals promoting corruption in their societies.”

He added, ”As teachers, you should use your time at the institute to devise strategies to fight the vice within your schools.” He further urged them to live good legacies that will be remembered in the years to come by standing firm against corruption.

State House Anti Corruption Unit has registered a huge success against corruption and has been able to recover over UGX30 billion taxpayers’ money through prosecutions, and other measures 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, and 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. an accessible web community
