Uganda announced that it had discovered 31 million metric tons of gold waiting to be mined in the country after several surveys were conducted. [...]
Refining gold locally could enhance job creation, and improve social service delivery to those living close to where the mineral is extracted. Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has called for the local refinement of the the commodity, calling any external refinery criminal. "It is criminal for anybody to argue for the continued exports of raw materials in Africa, when there is 90% more value in that product that you are giving to the outsiders" he said.

Uganda has announced that it has struck a deposit of 31 million tonnes of gold ore, with extractable pure gold estimated to gross 320,000 tonnes.
President Museveni provided little detail, pointing in general that it would fetch the country more than $12 trillion.
I think Uganda will find that the USA will soon figure out they have to bring "democracy" to the african country.
