When it happened

Saturday, 1 November 2014


In November 2014, the US Ambassador to Uganda, Scott DeLisi announced that the proposed law on NGOs could hurt tourism. As he cautioned that the proposed legalisation can crack the whip on civil society organisations and continue to wreak the country’s already tainted human rights record, he noted that “Uganda is still a destination for high-end independent travellers who are looking for an unique experience."

"These travellers also pay attention, more than most, to the political and social environment in the countries they visit,” he added.
