Led by the Uganda’s Shadow Minister of Environment, Beatrice Anywar, the activists want to compel government to reveal to the public the contents of the agreement.

Anywar, who is also the woman MP for Kitgum adds that the petition seeks to lecture  government on how Ugandans will benefit from the oil revenue.

The Shadow Minister expects over one million Ugandans to sign the agreement before it is handed over to the President.

MPs have on several occasions clashed with the Energy ministry over the ministry’s reluctance to provide the agreements.
