Museveni to lift ban on DGF after almost two years of suspension 

0

After almost two years of suspension of the Democratic Governance Facility (DGF), hope has arisen that the Multi-billion operating NGO will soon be allowed to resume operations.

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni had suspended the civil society funding body on grounds of it operating a multi-billion donor fund without government representation in its decision-making structures.

However, while he met the Danish Minister for Development Cooperation, Flemming Miller Mortensen, the President agreed to lift the ban he last year imposed on DGF.

“The President’s promise came following an appeal by Hon. Mortensen and the Danish Ambassador said that the project has only six months left to elapse. The President said he would formally communicate the position to the relevant Government departments,” reads the Presidential Press Unit statement in part.

Also, the President assured Danish investors of the available markets of Uganda, East Africa, Africa, the US, and China among others. He saluted Denmark for commercializing milk in Uganda. For his part, Mortensen promised to give Uganda support in the area of irrigation in order to stabilize agriculture.

Minister Mortensen told the President that Denmark will establish new programs in Uganda in the areas of human rights, civic education, and accountability. He said that Denmark has a lot of focus on the relationship with Uganda. The Minister said that Denmark will be a good partner to Uganda and that they will continue to support development projects in Uganda for a better life.
