The study was aimed at establishing the position of the concept of the rule of law by critiquing the concept with the critical analysis majorly on the doctrine of separation of powers and independence of judiciary since 1986 to present concept of the rule of law, independence of the judiciary and the doctrine of separation of powers. The variables were tested using both primary data from the field and secondary data from physical books and internet and other literature. The study was both significant to the researcher, judiciary, government and the general public. The researcher found out that judicial independence is important in the administration of justice. Therefore, the finding of the study showed that judicial independence is not strictly observed and the separation of powers is not to the expected standards and therefore this has affected the performance of the judiciary and sabotaged the application of the concept of the rule of law since 1986 to present. It was recommended that, the doctrine of separation of powers be upheld as provided for in the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, 1995. This therefore will create an independent judiciary so that justice is administered without fear, favor and or ill will.
