The year is 2018. The United States has finally emerged from the previous decade's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the economic recession that threatened to tear the country apart. Eighteen months into his first term, President Tom Knowles sees a chance to put his stamp on world affairs when 32 American aid workers are massacred in Uganda by a group of rebel partisans. Knowles decides to send in troops into an area that China considers its African sphere of influence. Privately, the message from the Chinese is keep out. Publicly, they can only stand by and watch. Six weeks later, stock prices on Wall Street are plummeting. Rumors of insolvency haunt a major investment bank, which is leading the rout. When the bank refuses a government bailout, and it becomes known that the Chinese state-run People's Investment Corporation is its major shareholder, the stock-marker slide turns into a panic. Are United States stock prices being manipulated by the Chinese government? As the president's team takes drastic action to protect the US economy, the Chinese government strikes back to protect its interests, and the confrontation shifts rapidly from Wall Street to Africa, where American and Chinese forces stand eye to eye. Who will blink first? An economic and geopolitical thriller from a writer described as the heir to Tom Clancy and Michael Crichton, Trigger Point moves from the Oval Office to Africa to Beijing and paints a terrifying portrait of where we may be headed. 1.

This book analyzes dynamics of Public-Private Partnership contractual arrangements and focuses on uncovering reasons of the disintegration (renegotiation and/or cancellation) of such contracts. It looks in detail at a specific case of a contractual arrangement of concessioning of the Tanzania Railway Corporation (TRC), a backbone of the corridor that links the landlocked Rwanda, Burundi and Uganda, as well as the eastern DRC and the hinterland of Tanzania, to the port of Dar es Salaam. This research first concludes that such widely acknowledged causes as information incompleteness and asymmetry (contract-related explanations) and opportunistic behavior and strategic alliance-making (non-contractual explanations) cannot fully explain disintegration of a particular contractual arrangement. It then builds upon a case study to extend existing explanations of contract failure and renegotiation by drawing on organizational and alliance theories and explains which characteristics of the institutional context make the detrimental effects of particular causes possible.
Customer-orientated reforms are globally being adopted to address the widespread dissatisfaction with traditional public services. However, the pessimism regarding their application in the public sector especially in developing countries implies limitations in existing research. Therefore, there is overwhelming need for empirical evidence about why, what, how and where such reforms have been applied within specific sectors and contexts. This study assesses the relevance of the reforms when implemented by the National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC), which is in charge of urban water supply in Uganda. Using multiple data sources, that include household water user surveys, documentary review, observations, focus groups and interviews, this study responds to the questions: Has the NWSC become more customer-oriented as a result of reforms? If so, what are the consequences for user satisfaction and loyalty? The study finds first that customer oriented reforms in the NWSC were introduced by a committed leadership which reduced resistance to change and coordinated key stakeholder involvement.

Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) is the public broadcaster of Uganda. It was founded as a result of the "Uganda Broadcasting Corporation Act, 2004", which merged the operations of Uganda Television (UTV) and Radio Uganda. It started broadcasting on November 16, 2005. The Uganda Broadcasting Corporation Act stated that the UBC should be funded by the levying of a television license fee. Collection of a license fee set at USh20,000 (around 8.40 or US$10.80) started in 2005. However, collection was subsequently halted by President Yoweri Museveni. There has since been pressure to reinstate the license fee to maintain UBC''s independence.

Uganda Airlines Corporation went out of business in May 2001. On October 1988, the company''s Boeing 707 crashed near Rome, killing 31 of the 52 people aboard. The plane was Uganda Airlines'' only one fitted with a "hush kit" to reduce noise to European standards. Uganda Airlines resumed service with a leased aircraft with flights to the Middle East and Nairobi, but these flights were canceled in late 1989. Domestic routes, too, had been reduced to those between Entebbe Airport and the airfields at Arua and Kasese. Several local, regional and international firms expressed an interest in taking over Uganda Airlines upon privatisation, but later pulled out, leaving only South African Airways (SAA), which also backed out.
