The Democratic Governance Facility (DGF), a group of contributors for governance initiatives in Uganda, has been unfrozen by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

During a meeting with Danish investors who had showed interest in investing in Uganda on Wednesday at State House Entebbe, the President made the announcement.

Museveni stated that DGF will restart operations under the condition that the government is represented in its decision-making processes after its activities were suspended last year.

The project only had six months left to run, according to an appeal made to President Museveni by the Danish Minister for Development Cooperation, Hon. Flemming Miller Mortensen, and the Danish Ambassador, Nicolaj Hejberg Petersen.

Museveni then made an investment pitch in Uganda after hearing their prayer, assuring the Danish investors of markets in Uganda, East Africa, Africa, the United States, and China.

Hon. Mortensen informed the President that Denmark would launch new initiatives in Uganda in the fields of civic education, accountability, and human rights, and that the nation is committed to its partnership with Uganda.

The Minister gave Museveni the assurance that Denmark will continue to assist development initiatives in Uganda and be a reliable partner.
