President Museveni has agreed to lift the ban he imposed on Democratic Governance Facility (DGF), a civil society funding body, whose activities were suspended last year.
In a press statement issued by the Presidential Press Unit, Museveni made the commitment Wednesday in Kampala while meeting the Danish Minister for Development Cooperation, Flemming Møller Mortensen.
It is almost two years ever since Museveni suspended DGF accusing it of operating a multibillion donor fund without the government being represented in its decision-making structures.
Ever since DGF was suspended, a number of meetings have been held between the European Union donor countries that pool together the Fund’s resources and senior government officials. However, up until now, no concrete results have been realized.
