The Committee on Natural Resources set to interact with petitioners of over 20,000 Mubende artisanal and small scale miners who were evicted in literally two hours and reportedly not even allowed to take their belongings.

The groups, Uganda Association of Artisanal Miners, Mubende United Miners Assembly and Federation of Artisanal and Small Scale Miners contend that local miners in Mubende were unfairly evicted in August 2017, only two months after they had petitioned the Speaker of Parliament. MPs who were sent on the ground (Mubende mines) and found that the locals had already been evicted by the army to give way to the investor.

The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga recently ordered the committee to meet the aggrieved miners and produce a report in two weeks after the Uganda Association of Artisanal Miners petitioned Parliament again. Photos by Timothy Murungi
