Message From The Executive Director

Dear Stakeholders,

I am greatly honoured to assume the role of Executive Director at the Financial Intelligence Authority (FIA) of Uganda. As I step into this position, I want to express my deepest gratitude to the Board of Directors of the FIA, Hon. Minister of Finance, Planning and Economic Development, Hon. Speaker of the Parliament of the Republic of Uganda and all those who have entrusted me with this significant responsibility of leading the country's effort to combat money laundering, terrorism financing and proliferation financing.

The Financial Intelligence Authority is a specialized national agency established to combat money laundering, terrorism financing and proliferation financing. The FIA, therefore, plays a pivotal role in ensuring and fostering the integrity and stability of Uganda’s financial system.

As the Executive Director of the Authority, I look forward to effective collaboration with all Law Enforcement Agencies, Supervisory Bodies, National Intelligence bodies, and other Competent Authorities at national, regional and international level.

My most pressing goals is to ensure that Uganda gets off the FATF grey list by February next year 2024. This is not an easy task and can only be achieved through unwavering diligence, commitment, and cooperation from all sector players in the AML/CFT landscape. We shall therefore, not only strive to meet AML/CFT international standards but also surpass them, thereby making our country a model of financial vigilance in the region.

As I embark on this journey, I am confident and strongly believe that our collective efforts will yield significant results towards ensuring a stable financial system. I look forward to meeting each of you in our scheduled domestic and international cooperation engagements and working together to make our financial sector a safe and prosperous space for all.

Lastly, I want to send a strong warning to all the perpetrators of financial crimes that Uganda is unsafe for your activities. I invite all AML/CFT stakeholders to join hands in the fight against financial crimes and together, we can make a difference.

I thank you all for your trust and support as we move forward with determination and purpose.
