Uganda Printing and Publishing Corporation

Over 115 years of experience as Uganda's leading security printer and publisher.

Uganda Printing and Publishing Corporation (UPPC) started operations in the early 1900s. It became incorporated in 1992, turning into an autonomous body under the office of the President.

Before independence, UPPC was managed by expatriates until 1970 when Bossa Emmanuel became the first African government printer. He was followed by Sempala George William from 1975 to 1979, Lawrence Kasozi from 1979 to 1988 and David Muwaya from 1988 to 1992.

When the Government Printer became Uganda Printing and Publishing Corporation in 1992, by an Act of Parliament, Cap 330, its leadership turned into managing director and a board. The first managing director was Mr Brian Birtle from 1992-1996. He was followed by Mr Peter Baker from 1996 to1998, Ms Bakaawa Elizabeth from 1998 to 2012 and Levi Malinzi took over in an acting capacity for about a year. I then took over as a substantive managing director in 2014.
