Revealed: List of NGOs likely to be affected by suspension of DGF

President Museveni, early this year, directed the immediate suspension of the activities of the Democratic Governance Facility (DGF), the largest pool of donor funding to non-governmental organisations in Uganda over what has been termed as financing of subversive activities.

According to Museveni's letter, DGF operates a Shs 500 billion fund on which many Non Governmental Organisations and government agencies draw operational costs.

Sources within the civil society told Nile Post that Museveni's decision could lead to a closure of more than 100 organisations and affect some of the projects run by agencies in his government.
