A new legislation, the Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs) registration (amendment) bill 2014 has been approved by cabinet.
Through the bill, cabinet seeks to enhance documentation of funding for NGOs, their source of funds and enhance tracking mechanisms of their activities.
Addressing a news conference at the Uganda Media Centre on May 29, Rose Namayanja, the minister of Information and National Guidance, said government has been exploring ways of shielding Uganda from undocumented inflow and outflow of funds for NGOs.
Namayanja said undocumented funds cause difficulties in forecasting exchange rates, money laundering, tax evasion and raise the possibility of such resources being directed towards fanning instability.
"There has not been comprehensive information about the outlay of such resources and full listings of activities some NGOs are engaged in," she said.
