Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga

What you need to know:

  • In Uganda, tighter rules on terrorism financing under the Anti-Money Laundering Act, 2013, make it difficult to receive into the country in excess of Shs10m either through money transfer services or inter-bank transfers without questions, if not prohibition.

The security agencies have implicated petroleum and real estate companies in the laundering of over Shs1.8b to bankroll the activities of Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a terrorist group, in the country.
Although the police didn’t name the petroleum firms and real estate dealers, they provided particulars of two suspects already taken into custody over the alleged criminal dealings.
