The Indians living in Uganda, even though they have been requesting government to recognise them as one of the indigenous communities in Uganda, they don’t want to cooperate with Ugandans. There are many reports in Kampala, Uganda and Africa as a whole of Indians sexually abusing Ugandans (Africans)…and offering hard work and little pay to Ugandans.
This has been evidenced when the Indians living in Uganda agreed amongst themselves never again to use Ugandan professional accounts. As a consequence, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India Uganda (ICAIU) was launched at Silver Springs in Kampala by Indians living in Uganda.
The Chairman of Indian Association of Uganda, Rajesh Chaplot down plays the importance of the formation of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India Uganda by saying that its role is to uphold chartered accountancy profession in Ugandan as trustee of high quality, financial competency, managing business risks, corporate governance, assurance and audit competency and business competitiveness.
He says another aim of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India Uganda is to recognize the need for professional development in the changing global and Ugandan business environment.
“We also want to organise professional development sessions for Indian professionals with focus on value based, changing business and organisation structures,” he says.
