AFIEGO and partners' communique on the Shs 6B oil cash payout to public officials
Dear Hon. Betty Amongi,
We, at Africa Institute for Energy Governance (AFIGO), have noted with great concern your attempts to fool Ugandans into thinking that government’s insistence on amending the constitution to deprive Ugandans of their right to prior compensation in compulsory land acquisition exercises by government is good for Ugandans. Open letter to the Minister of Lands on proposed land amendments
This memorandum highlights proposals by AFIEGO and six other CSOs and CBOs from the oil region for the 2016 Draft Land Acquisition and Resettlement Framework (LARF); the framework has been developed by the Joint Venture Partners -CNOOC, Total and Tullow Oil- and the government of Ugandato guide the process of land acquisition for infrastructure for the oil and gas sector. Civil society proposals to improve the planned land acquisition by government and oil companies

Dear President Kim,
We, Africa Institute for Energy Governance (AFIEGO), the Guild Presidents Forum on Oil Governance (GPFOG) and the Oil Refinery Residents Association (ORRA) wish to appreciate government’s issuance of production licenses to Tullow Oil and Total E&P. We congratulate the companies for having successfully undergone the rigorous process required in order to be issued with production licenses. The issuance of the licenses on August 30, 2016 is an important milestone and brings Uganda closer to first oil. How Ugandans have waited for this day. Open statement on issuance of production licences to Tullow Oil and Total E&P
In this Issue, AFIEGO showcased the work we do in the energy sector to bring justice to the poor and vulnerable, we put a spotlight on the Oil for Development Program. We highlighted the program's great achievements and show what next should be done to ensure that the laws, policies and other benefits of the program are implemented so that Ugandans can benefit from their oil.
