Uganda's estimated oil wealth has increased from 3.5 billion to 6.5 billion barrels,following new discoveries. || 80% of the land in Uganda is tilled by Women but they own less than 10% of it. || The Albertine grabben, where most of Uganda's oil is found, is also one of the most ecologically diverse regions in Africa.
n the letter, written to the Minister of Energy by AFIEGO and the refinery-affected people, we demand for the re-assessment, compensation using 2017/2018 rates and payment of a disturbance allowance of 30% as mandated by the law to the refinery-affected people.
As we are aware, the refinery-affected people have waited for over five years now for compensation or relocation. This injustice must be urgently addressed through all of us working together to hold government accountable.
