This paper highlights deficiencies in Uganda’s national security civilian intelligence services’ oversight systems and their implications for the democratic governance of the security sector. It argues that the intelligence subsector in Uganda still lags behind as far as adhering to democratic governance norms is concerned. The legislature and civil society organizations which are supposed to ensure that intelligence organizations operate within the rule of law find veritable challenges due to some legislative ambiguities. The paper recommends that the laws governing intelligence services should be amended to give more definite mandates to the legislature and other oversight bodies.
