WELCOME NOTE

Dear CSCO members and Partners,

Greetings from the Secretariat and welcome back from the festive season break. Just for your information, the secretariat opened for the New Year on 9th January, 2017.

During the long break, some interesting developments have taken place in the Oil and Gas Sector. Prominent among them has been the widely publicized Oil Bonanza issue, in which 42 Uganda government officials were awarded a UGX 6 Billion presidential handshake in August 2015, for their involvement in cases between Government of Uganda and two International Oil Companies. While there may be differing opinions on the legitimacy of this golden handshake, it should be recalled that an order from the Constitutional Court of Uganda was issued on 9th January, 2017, barring anybody from investigating, questioning or inquiring into this issue. Parliament of Uganda, which was set to debate the matter, was accordingly restrained by the said order.  This has created a stalemate;with the Speaker suspending all Parliamentary business until the order is vacated. It will be interesting to follow the turns and twists in this matter during 2017.
