According to two French activist groups, Total’s oil operations in Uganda have hurt tens of thousands of people in Uganda and Tanzania. Its operation is linked to their human rights and claims they have been violated. The French activists are expecting a court order demanding the company to expose how it is addressing the alleged adverse impact of its activities, citing an obligation to do so under French law.
Total intimidated and failed to properly compensate local landowners affected by work on its Tilenga project in Uganda as claimed by the campaign groups with Ugandan activists and said that environmental safeguards were not up to that mark. In their recent report on Tuesday, they added that the situation was also disturbing access to education and healthcare in some cases.
