Government of Uganda set a target of achieving a lower middle income status by 2020 as a bedrock for achieving the country’s Vision 2040. Key policy frameworks such the National Development Plan (NDPs) were drafted to spearhead the aspiration. Notably the above set target was not achieved during the NDP II period (2014/15-2020/21). Observably, the size, strength or of the ability of the middle class is envisaged as a vehicle for the middle-income agenda and prerequisites for building or driving transition into a strong and stable lower middle-income status country. However, Uganda’s middle class is highly fragile. Therefore, the middle class in Uganda is a weak one, incapable of driving the economy to achieve and sustain the middle-income status goal.
