President Museveni on Wednesday announced he had finally agreed to lift the suspension he had imposed on the Democratic Governance Facility (DGF) last year.
Museveni in January last year directed the suspension of the activities of DGF, the largest pool of donor funding to non-governmental organisations in Uganda which is financed by Denmark, Ireland, Austria, UK, Sweden, Norway, and the European Union to facilitate equitable growth, poverty eradication, rule of law and long-term stability in the country.
“Today, I hosted the Danish Minister for Development Cooperation. We discussed a number of bilateral issues. I also agreed to lift the ban on DGF to run till December 2022, with Government represented in the decision-making structures,”Museveni said in a tweet.
The Presidential Press Unit further substantiated the development saying it followed a meeting at State Lodge , Nakasero.
