The Nationwide consultations with all stake-holders to obtain views and input into the Draft Policy and Bill have been completed.
This new Bill will replace the 1970 Firearms Act and align it with the provisions of all international instruments (including the UNPoA) that Uganda is a party to that provide stringent measures for regulation of import, export, transport, transit, brokering, possession, transfer etc… of SALW.
The draft policy has been forwarded to the responsible Minister for consideration. The draft bill that seeks to repeal the existing firearm act is being developed.
[SALW = small arms and light weapons]
