Landowners in the Gobe Project of Gulf and Southern Highlands have petitioned the Government over outstanding benefits.
Today, the landowners expressed dissatisfaction over the delayed clan identification process stating the government has failed this process.
The group of Landowners claimed they handed their petition two weeks ago, but received no response from authorities. For this landowner group who are within the 5 project sites of the Oil and Gas project, they say, the government process has again failed them, particularly through the landowner identification process.
They state, the government must now respond or see drastic measures taken within the five project sites of the oil and gas project.
In the 4 page petition presented to the national government, the leaders want the clan vetting process to be finalised, including the ADR process, so IDG funds are disbursed for projects earmarked in the agreement signed in 1998.
They claim an outstanding amount of K50 million, which they say was supposed to be paid to them, however to date only K5 million was released.
The Gobe landowners have no intention to stop operations in the 5 project sites but want the national government to address their petition.
