Uganda's overall inflation has been rising to its highest level in almost two decades, as year-on-year inflation on food topped 45 percent, leading to a steep price on the cost of food and other essentials that has seen the standards of living for most Ugandans plummet. Protests rocked Kampala last April when opposition chief Kizza Besigye launched demonstrations against high living costs, sparking violent police crack down that killed at least 10 people and placed Besigye house arrest.
