      You can still open a brokerage account even if you're outside Uganda. You just have to send over all the necessary documents that the broker requires to confirm your identity.

      Depends on the broker, haven't done it before though. Anyway, they still need to fulfill KYC requirements to make sure they know the legal identity of the person opening the account otherwise money launderers and corrupt politicians can use brokerage accounts to hide money.
