The Ugandan Trademarks registry has published a list of trademarks that are eligible to be renewed in 2016-17. The term of a trademark is seven years from filing date.  The trademark can be renewed every 14 years.  The application for renewal must be made within six months from the expiration date of the trademark or a penalty for late renewal will need to be paid. When renewing a trademark, it is not necessary to prove use of the trademark.
