wanawume mwana Uganda is going to build bigger refineries than kenya because we will have the money.o.k........................................

1st of due its size

but Tanzanians r people who dont want change, they harras investors
they didnt attend school and r very tribalistic, they discrimate other countries like mostly Ugandans coz they think we r very brave and we dont dispeise work, Tanzanians mostly speak Swahili which is known in east Africa,
can u study math and physics in swahili,
so Tanzanians u continue coming to Uganda to style u up.thanks
Tanzanians did adopt an absolute Socialism, a system that was a failure in most things, Socialsim doesnt create wealth, there are no competition. so that is a failure.

However, Tanzania is a very peaceful country. It's doens't want Kenyans, Ugandans, because they don't want any trouble in their country.

They harrass Investors because they are are not used to Competitive market Ideas. There country was locked to Foreigners.
Coal is not really expensive and they only exploit a faction of it anyways and Diamond is number one export/ But their economy is heavily subdusied.


Yes, it's possible to study Math and Physics in Swahili , Tanzanians have developed their Swahili, and it's their Mother Language, It' a great thing to do. It's done in Congo as well, There two scholls that teaches Math , Science, Physics in Swahili , Lingala andcTchiluba.

I don't see/hear Congolese beig harrassed by Tanzanians, there are more than 100,000 Congolese in Tanzania, as well as Rwandese.

guys Uganda is super rich.................................

Guys view this;

Oil explorer Heritage Oil and Gas says it has struck one of the largest oilfields in northern Ugandan district of Amuru, far surpassing any of the previous discoveries by any of the exploring companies in the country. The company called the discovery, at Giraffee-1 exploration well in Block 1, “world-class.” News of the discovery saw the company’s share price on the London Stock Exchange go up by 1.1 per cent.

According to the company, the Giraffe-1 well has approximately 38 meters of net oil pay and, combined with Buffalo well which was discovered in December last year, covers an estimated 48 square kilometres. The entire stretch, Heritage estimates, contains upwards of 400 million barrels of crude oil. “The large Buffalo-Giraffe structure is a world-class discovery which could prove to be substantially more extensive than currently outlined, unlocking the multi-billion barrel potential of Block 1,” said Tony Buckingham, Heritage’s chief executive officer.

Before the latest discovery, officials from Tullow Oil had early this month told a local daily that the oil reserves discovered so far on the Ugandan side of the Lake Albert rift basin were estimated at 1 billion barrels.

Heritage pioneered active exploration for oil in the Albertine Graben in Western Uganda in 1997 but suffered initial setbacks when they discovered modest and commercially unviable deposits of oil with lots of carbon dioxide. The company later struck good oil at Kingfisher near the shoreline of Lake Albert and followed that with a string of viable discoveries.

Mr Buckingham said they now had reserves way above the “commercial threshold” for development. He said 2009 will be very active as the developmental phase starts to take shape in the Albert Basin, alongside continuing well appraisal and exploration of the basin. Several other prospects and leads have already been mapped within Block 1 from over 600 kilometers of seismic data acquired over the past 18 months.

In an interview, the acting Commissioner for Petroleum Production and Exploration Department in Entebbe, Mr Ernest Rubondo said, “as the company has noted, the reservoir quality is excellent with porosities of up 30 per cent which simply means that there is more oil down there and which flows easily thus making it to get it to the surface.” Giraffe-1 and Buffalo are located in Amuru district which is north of Buliisa.

Mr Rubondo said it was remarkable that more oil was being discovered towards West Nile, where exploration started recently, confirming suggestions that Uganda’s oil deposits might be far more extensive than originally thought. Much of the exploration activity had been concentrated around Hoima and Buliisa. “We are really delighted that the success in exploration that we have already had in Hoima is being replicated towards Northwest,” he said.

Uganda is expected to produce 40,000 barrels of oil per day when production by Tullow Oil commences in the fourth quarter of 2009. The company is expected to put up a mini refinery, from where it will process crude oil into HFO to be used by thermal power plants and modest diesel for market. President Yoweri Museveni has said proceeds from the oil, if invested well, will pave the way for the next phase of Uganda’s development.

Mr Museveni says Uganda has a good deal, which could earn it up to 70 per cent of the proceeds. The government has however refused to disclose the production sharing agreements that it has signed with the oil companies, saying there are confidentiality clauses barring parties from disclosing it.yet this information was published in january when tullows hadnt got any other oil in march so now ican produce 1 million barrels a day

guys Uganda is super rich.................................

and yesterday i read about some like rebel activity in the oil region that maybe some backward locals trying to take on the government and i just wanna know if its true
another question for the kenyans is that does Kenya have any oil deposits because i sort of saw a p diagram showing oil in like the Masai region
can anyone clarify
k thanks alot my east african brethren

we all like to big up our respective countries but not to be cocky over nothing
and BTW the latest figures show Uganda's oil deposits at about 2 billion barrels
which is competion with arab nations and venezuela nd chile well south american sountries

Note this:
K.I.U is referred to as a university of damn students, coz if parent hears that any of her relative kid is in K.I.U he/she curses like this.......,'oyo asomaki', which means in English 'wat is yo son or daughter studying'
Are you refering to Kenyan students in UG? Truth is, most come to Uganda due to the comparative cheaper cost of education in Uganda compared to Kenya. I dont think people cross borders anywhere on this planet just to party.

Learning is about aquiring knowledge and skills, Language is just a means to do so. One can learn in Swahili.

Im not one to expect complete transparency from the government over an issue such as oil. As for the rebels. . Kenya still hasn't found oil and it definitely wouldn't be found in the Maasai areas unless someone can prove otherwise.

I've read articles not too long ago that Tanzania had closed the gap on Kenya and was on the verge of passing it in terms of gdp per capita. They've been the most stable of East Africa nations. But their very dependent on aid, 40% of their budget relies on foreign aid.

I expect nothing from oil.

Tourisme, agriculture, offshoring, manufactering etc are the future for a good stabile economy.

Saudi Arabia lived years only from oil. Their GDP wasn't very big. Now they are reducing the oil sector by investing in non-oil sectors, and thanks to that their GDP will go to 1000 billion dollar in the comming 10 years!

The oil countries in Africa should follow this example and their GDP will become bigger..
