Frontline stories, 2010 – ActionAid Uganda

As per Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index for 2010 Uganda ranked 127 of 178 countries and scored 2,6 points on a scale from zero to 10. Corruption runs deep and at all levels. Yet, many individuals fight corruption at the grass root level. They know and feel the negative implications of corruption and they take it upon themselves to work against it.  In some cases they keep up the struggle regardless of death threats against them and their families. Together with photographer Stephen Wandera, I documented their battle. We collected their stories in this publication “Fighting corruption from below”.
