Uganda to ratify Nile agreement
Uganda, a vocal supporter of Ethiopia’s Renaissance Dam, has announced plans to ratify the Entebbe agreement. When completed, Uganda will become the second country behind Ethiopia to ratify the Nile River Cooperative Framework Agreement. Gerald Tenywa of New Vision explains:
Kamuntu told New Vision that the old agreements of the Nile were being used to block development of hydroelectric power and irrigation agriculture that would enhance energy security and food security. He also said the old agreements were archaic because they addressed only the interests of the users and ignored the contributors of the water.
