Developing countries like Uganda embark on decentralization as part of their political and administrative reforms. Decentralization is expected to promote democratization, people's participation and a host of other desirable political and administrative objectives. Uganda's experience shows that the adoption of decentralization as a policy does not automatically translate its objectives into reality since its implementation proves to be a complicated process. This article discusses why decentralization was adopted in Uganda, how it is being implemented, the constraints as well as the challenges that the country is now facing in the process of its implementation. It proposes measures on how to make decentralization work for the country
