Abstract: This paper attempts to reflect on the majority of the right to Development in Uganda as provided in the 1995 Uganda constitution, against the background of Principles and dimensions of the United Nations Declaration on the Right to Development and the African Charter on Human and People's Rights (Article 22). The 1995 constitution recognizes the Right to Development, stressing the role of people and the state in the development in Uganda, bringing to the fore to the need for balanced and equitable development. Therefore, this paper reflects on the effectiveness of the legal framework to development in Uganda, to examine the role of the state in the policy mechanisms for the interpretation of the right to development in Uganda; and to establish the challenges to effective implementation of the right to development. Uganda is faced with a real crisis, whatever decision made will have repercussions for a considerable period of time and its only people to decide for themselves. It can be surmised that there is a substantial section of the population who would like to process of political liberalization in the country. But in examining the issue we shouldn't only be moved by numbers but should also weigh the strength. A major tenet of modern day democracy is the existence of a multiparty system, and allowing political parties to function finely. As for the right to development in Uganda has not yet found real reflection on the life of the ordinary people , many of whom are still excluded from the development process . Uganda must get beyond constitutional provisions to translate these guidelines in to concrete human well being guided by comprehensive principles and an approach most suitable for realization of this right to development .Ugandans must ,therefore hold their government morally and politically accountable for any deviation from the principles and objectives of state policy contained in the construction . The approach most suitable for the realization of the right to development is holistic and integral , considering not only the economic well being of people but also taking in to account the social , political , cultural and moral dimensions of their life ; one that considers the human person as the central subject , active participant and beneficiary of the right to development.
