Sector / Department: 

The CDO and lower local officers in Jinja/Mpumudde are using extortion when asked to write their letters of recommendation so that the RDC and finalize his for our NGO renewal. In total they are demanding 250,000. We have NOT paid this money. Given that we work throughout the country, why is this RDC letter essential to the renewal application? Why not have letters from partners or participants that endorse our work.
