Uganda: February 3, 2004

An Ugandan government committee's investigation has revealed that almost one in five soldiers in the military is a 'ghost'. The personal files from most units indicates a difference between a payable strength of 55,588 and file returns from 45,497 soldiers (or 10,091 non-existent soldiers, that 'someone' is collecting pay and benefits). Most of the 'ghost' soldiers are created within auxiliary militia forces mobilized to fight alongside the army. - Adam Geibel
