"Kasita - excellent and informative post.  The 2008 Oil and Gas Policy commits Uganda to implement the EITI but little has happened since then.  Do you know if either of the Petroleum Bills mention EITI implementation?"

Oil firm fails to find wells

By Ibrahim Kasita

Imagine investing $50m (sh125b) in a business venture and after seven years there is nothing to show. This is what happened to Neptune Petroleum Uganda Ltd when it invested $50m in drilling three wells -Iti-1, Avivi-1 and the latest Mvule-1 in West Nile in Uganda.

Only to discover a dry well or a well filled with water. The $50m was not readily available on…

Hi Ibrahim, I have a question about the legislative framework in Uganda. Has the Petroleum Bill passed? Do you have a copy? Are there regulations already? Many thanks for helping me out with this one! Cindy

Ibrahim:

I am just reading a sad story in the EDUCATION section of your paper, the New Vision online  about a little girl called Maria with some health problem that has made her quit school. She was hoping to become a medical doctor.

How can I help her return to school?

Hi Ibrahim! How are you? I'm curious to know how the training went last weekend? Do you have a participant list and an agenda by any chance? Thanks! Cindy

Hello Ibrahim.

We set up a group for Wilton Park participants (see under groups). We will send our reports of the Big Conversation out through the group. If you want to receive them, please join the group.

Thanks!

Hi Ibrahim - how are you? I thought that it would be great to have a group for journalists on Goxi. I remember that quite a few people at the Big Conversation were passionate about the power of media for better governance in EI. Would you be interested in forming a group and inviting journalists from Uganda and other countries to join? Best.

Hi Ibrahim - check out this article "Liberia: LEITI Seeks Media Teamwork". It stresses the importance of good media reporting again. I wonder if/how we could engage media more not only on GOXI but on how to get the information to the people in a clear and effective way. You've been working on that, right? Could you share some of your material/articles? Thanks!
