Education

Refinery affected persons hang in balance

As we journeyed deeper into Bukona Village in Buseruka Sub-county- Hoima District, the road grew narrower and steeper. Over grown shrubs made it impossible for the strong four wheel drive vehicles to proceed in the comfort of our air-conditioned mini bus. We step out into sweltering sun and walk the rest of the kilometres deeper into village to meet the community members of the 93 households who remain on the land awaiting resettlement and 670 people waiting for compensation.
