information pills geneva;”>treatment sans-serif;”>This is to ensure value is added to the local community by registering business companies, civil and intellectual property rights, as part of government mandate created under the Parliament’s act of Registration Services Bureau Act, cap. 210.

The Chairperson Acholi Parliamentary Group, Hon. Regan Okumu said that registration of companies reduces insecurity since all companies and individuals registered can easily be allocated.

“This will also help reduce on expenditure on security which is given more priority in the national budget but rather resources will go to government agencies which produce revenue,” said Mr Okumu.

“By registering the citizens, it will no longer be hard to know who is a citizen and who’s not since there are currently many illegal immigrants in the country,” added Okumu.

The Registrar of Uganda Registration Service Bureau, Mr Bamanya Twebaze said registration “will support the private sector growth and development by formalizing business operations since in the past it has been expensive for locals to transport themselves to Kampala to register their companies.”


He further noted that this will also protect against piracy as the registration of intellectual and copy rights will be ensured.

The Chairman board of directors for Uganda Registration Service Bureau, Hon Guma Gumisiriza Guma said, by adding more regional offices to Arua, Mbale and Mbarara will be increasing public trust.

He added that with the effective record management system, there has been increase in revenue from Shs 300 million collected in one year to Shs 21 billion.

“We want to move from paper system to digital documentation,” said Guma.

The Guest of honor, Minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Kahinda Otafiire said, “as the rest of the country walks, Northern Uganda should be running” because during the war many things where lost and damaged so there is need for reconstruction.

“Registration is not only for companies but even persons who died during the war need to be documented in terms of pushing history under the carpet,” said Otafiire.

The Minister further stated that history doesn’t repeat its self but it’s men who continuously fail to learn from their mistakes.

“I advise the community to even register their land and avoid persisting on customary land ownership since culture is dynamic and any time changes can lead to wrangles over estates,” said Otafiire.
