A Call for Inclusivity, Trust, and Accountability in Reforming Uganda’s National ID System

One of the most striking issues identified in the paper is the financial burden imposed on Ugandans for ID services. The fixed fee of UGX 50,000/- ($13.78 USD) for replacing identification cards is markedly higher compared to neighboring countries like Kenya, Rwanda, and extends even to South Africa and India. In a nation where approximately 30.1% of the population lives below the poverty line, this exorbitant fee exacerbates social inequalities and restricts access to essential services for many Ugandans.
