Corruption is one of the most wide spread problems in Uganda. Since the NRM''s taking over power they have been efforts to curtail the vice but it has remained and has not been stepped out despite the various efforts by the government to eliminate it. Today, the ACD has been established and whether it strengthens the struggle for the fight against corruption is the subject of this research. This study is an attempt to examine the manner in which the ACD operates and to ascertain its contribution to the fight against corruption in Uganda. This study examines the various issues that have made the pre ACD anti-corruption institutions fail to curtail the rampant levels of corruption. This is done by analyzing the mandate of the ACD and identifying the inadequacies of other institutions in the fight against corruption. It is against this background that my study concludes that corruption is an absurd practice which must be fought so that the people involved do not enrich themselves unjustly. The challenges involved in the fight against corruption are a major concern and should be addressed.
