BMI View: In recent years, the size of the Uganda People's Defence Force (UPDF) and the country's arms procurement have grown significantly, a trend BMI expects to continue over the forecast period, from 2015 through to 2019. This primarily reflects the growing role of the army in Uganda's domestic political landscape, which we attribute to President Yoweri Museveni's increasing domestic political isolation, as well as the need to maintain the country's status as a strategic ally of the US. In addition, Ugfanda's desire to become a regional power and the burgeoning arms race with Sudan to drive procurement. As such, we expect imports to Uganda, which lacks its own military-industrial base, from Russia and China in particular, to steadily increase for the foreseeable future.

Uganda's lack of an indigenous defence industry and underdeveloped manufacturing capabilities in general, leave it reliant upon procurements from foreign countries to satisfy the demands of its armed forces. Before 1990, these demands were readily met by military aid from the Soviet Union, which was eager to bolster the capabilities of one of the pro-Soviet states against the US. Now the armed forces are dependent upon states including China, Belarus and the Czech Republic for military equipment, some of which are alleged to have been obtained through unorthodox and sometimes undisclosed channels.
