An update to "proposition two" that demonstrates that even government is aware of the environmental carnage being wrecked by mining companies. Unfortunately Minister Namugala seems to be at sea with what to do:
“We need resources and more needs to be done in advocacy; one of the challenges in this sector is that we do not have vocal civil society organisations to speak on issues of the environment. We are not doing enough and I call on civil society to help us do so...."
Why should it be up to Civil Society Society? This is pathetic to say the least. A government minister begging civil society to give it hand to enforce its own regulations? People pay taxes so that the Minister does her job. Who exactly runs our country? If Namugala is unable to do her job perhaps its time to resign?
