allAfrica.com: Uganda: ‘Top Govt Officials Are Scrambling for Oil Land’

25 06 2010

I have been hearing rumors about this, but this article seems to confirm that government officials, with insider information about potential oil well sites in Uganda, are buying up land in the oil-rich Albertine Rift:

allAfrica.com: Uganda: ‘Top Govt Officials Are Scrambling for Oil Land’.

This is yet one more indication that Uganda will need to be watched closely to prevent this country from being destroyed by the discovery of oil.  There is the potential for oil to be a great boon to the people of Uganda, but there are a lot of powerful people who are seeing it as a great boon to their offshore bank accounts.
