New Developments in mining sector

Julius Bizimungu made this Access to information request to Rwanda Mines, Petroleum and Gas Board

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Julius Bizimungu to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Julius Bizimungu

Dear Rwanda Mines, Petroleum and Gas Board,

I would like to ask for the following information under Law no
04/2013 of 08/02/2013 relating to access to information.

I am a journalist working on a story about the mining sector in
Rwanda. I understand the Government has recently embarked on
correcting the mistakes that have occurred in the sector as a
result of privatizations. I want to get an understanding of how the
government is going around it.

I am interested in particular in knowing;

1. How many companies are currently operating in Rwanda’s mining
sector?
2. How many companies have the government stopped their operations
as a result of malpractices, and what are some of these
malpractices?
3. How many concessions has the government taken over?
4. Whether there is an estimates of how much Rwanda may have lost
as a result of some of the mining companies not adding value to
minerals (you may give a specific example of one company).

I would like to receive the information via email.

Yours faithfully,

Julius Bizimungu
