Uganda: Report on corporate accountability calls for business operations that is "consistent and promotes human rights"; includes companies comments

The Uganda Consortium on Corporate Accountability recently released a report on "The State of Corporate Accountability in Uganda". The report documents the human rights impacts of business operations on communities in the oil exploration and mining sectors. It advocates for business that "is consistent with and promotes human rights". [Refers to CNOOC, Total, Tororo Cement, Jan Mangal, Mechanised Agro, Seyani Brothers, DAO Africa & Tong Da China]. The Business and Human Rights Resource Centre sought a response from Seyani Brothers. The response is provided. We are also seeking responses from other companies that are adversely mentioned.
