Uganda is an interior country situated in East Africa, it attained it status as a Republic in 1962 when it received its independence from British colonial rule. Prior to 1962, Uganda’s justice system was powerful and respected, judicial hearings were impartial and well regarded. The system has since become riddled with exploitation and has increasingly become an inefficient justice system; however, with the election of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and the Ugandan Police Force, focus has shifted in an effort to reduce crime. The Uganda Police Force upholds heavy police placements in metropolitan areas that aids in the prevention of criminal and terrorist activities. While the increased police presence has made progress toward professionalization
Throughout the case study, overdependence on foreign states has come up multiple times as a reason why Rwanda wants to reduce the level of foreign aid she receives. Corruption is also a big side effect of foreign aid especially in third world countries. Rwanda as well as many other African countries suffers under corrupt leaders who unfortunately are the ones to come into contact with whatever form of aid that comes into the country, especially financial aid. Financial aid has facilitated and increased the corrupt tendencies of these leaders seeing that not all of the resources are used for the intended purpose. A country that has cultivated a lot from foreign aid like Rwanda is Kenya.
The country gained independence in the 1950’s and since then has been governed by a mix of both democratic and authoritarian styles of government. The main cause of chaos in Sudan is due to the oppressive rule of President Omar al-Bashir, who appears to have a stronghold on all the citizens. He is known to deny the people many of the basic fundamental freedoms as well as ban most sources of media in Sudan. The citizens are forced to obey his laws or face serious harm to them and their families. The level of corruption committed by the President is so grave that the International Criminal Court has filed ten serious charges against him, including crimes against humanity, war crimes, and genocide.
Why do some countries prosper while others stagnate? Why does almost half the world live on $2.50 a day? Why are most of the world’s nations living in poverty? In our modern world, the three main factors that determine a country’s wealth are institution, culture and geography. Rich countries have very good institutions while poor countries have extremely devastating ones.
Development is a normative concept due to which there is a constant tussle in conceptually defining development. There are different models of development parse but it has been increasingly equated to economic development and wrongly paralleled to economic growth. In strictly economic terms, development has conventionally meant a sustained annual increase in GNP (or GDP) at rates that vary from 5 percent to 7 percent or more (Kapila, 2013). Till the 1960’s the term economic development was used as a synonym to economic growth; where the latter meant increase in per capita GNP in real terms (adjusted to inflation). According to the economic historian Kindleberger, “Whereas economic growth merely refers to a rise in output, economic development
Introduction Rwanda is a landlocked country situated in the Great lakes of Central Africa covering a roughly 25000km of land and 1400 square km of water (Mbembé and Rendall, 2000). It has a population of estimated 9million people as per the 2006 country census. Its current population growth rate is estimated at a 3-3.5% per year. Being a third world country, it is faced with a number of challenges which includes: high poverty level, high level of illiteracy, health issues, and economic, social and political challenges (Goodfellow and Smith, 2013). This is because Rwanda economy depends on the primary level of production.
In Uganda, the fight against HIV/AIDS has been the struggle for them for quite a while and one which is decreasing the population in this country. Despite this current situation the country’s leaders try very hard to reduce the stigma associated with being HIV positive for Ugandans around the world. Tourism is not a vibrant industry in Uganda, despite its obvious beauty and it is widely assumed this is due to because the fear of coming into contact with anyone with this non-discriminatory disease. After conducting my research, despite the government’s attempts to distribute free condoms and a massive public information campaign the general this seems to have had very little impact on the behaviour patterns of the citizens. Thus, ending this plague hasn’t been successful over the years.
There is no real and fixed definition for development. Development could be a process of changing from a bad thing towards the good things and there is no end of development because it always a growing process. However, development can be seen as to increase the quality of life of human being around the world. These qualities of life include the job opportunities, employment, education, and clean water, health care and so on. The poor countries usually are been help in term of technology and science from developed countries and this lead to the increasing of capitalist in the backward country.
Serious brutality has been linked with conflict. Since 1970, about 30 wars were fought in Africa. In 1996, 53 countries in Africa were involved in armed conflicts and ended in about 8 million refugees. “Zimbabwe is another bomb waiting to explode as many Zimbabweans has fled the country to neighbouring countries as a result of the political crisis in that country which has crippled the whole country as a result of the dispute from their last general election (Wikipedia). Causes of conflicts in Africa (Kenya) The origin of conflicts are linked with the struggle for keeping and challenging a controlling power status, frastraction made by comparative hardship.
Moral obligations on Rwandan weddings remain a sensitive subject, particularly if you want to point out how unproductive to our society they have become. Our morals and their expectations on weddings have not changed with time. In the current economic context, morals focusing on impressing are likely to push us in a dependency trap that will lead us to a slow family growth. Think of a family with low income that must contribute to two or more wedding ceremonies every two months. At the end of the year, this family will have less or zero savings, and that is how we will be bringing our country 's progress down.
