Up to 70 percent of citizens can’t access information on local government budgets, laws and projects.

This is according to the latest findings of the report generated from a qualitative research study conducted by Twaweza, one of the Non Government Organisation (NGO) that aims at making children and citizens to demand, receive, and monitor service delivery from local and national governments.

The study was taken between December 2018 and March 2019.

The study targeted senior civil servants at national level in government ministries, Departments and Agencies, Parliament of Uganda, selected higher local governments and officers at lower local governments (sub-counties).

With 62 civil servants interviewed from national level and across five districts, the study conducted between December 2018 to March 2019 indicates that majority of public servants (both elected and appointed) have limited knowledge of the law.

The five districts selected for the study include Wakiso district in central Uganda; Buikwe on the shores of Lake Victoria; Hoima district in the Western region, Kole district in the North and Kamuli district in eastern Uganda.
