Training of senior officials praised in Uganda

2 February 2018

A five-day high level training programme to improve the management of Uganda’s Inspectorate of Government and Directorate of Public Prosecution has just been delivered by the Commonwealth in Jinja, Uganda.

The course equipped top-level staff with innovative skills – helping them to provide access to justice for all citizens and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions – the objective of  Sustainable Development Goal 16.  Twenty-five senior managers attended from 22 to 26 January, 2018.

Uganda’s Inspector General of Government, Justice Irene Mulyagonja commended the Commonwealth Secretariat for delivering an advanced and focused programme, giving senior officials a comprehensive picture of leadership from an international perspective.

Roger Koranteng, Head of Public Sector Governance at the Commonwealth, delivered the training programme.  He focused on the leadership and management skills required for anti-corruption agencies, and covered areas such as cultural challenges to leadership, behaviour relationships with subordinates, conflict management, strategic planning, ethics and professional values, time management and team-building.
