    @HansenInnocent @Emekannaoma Hansen why are u afraid of letting people go? U are still waiting for God to come from Heaven and fix a country that sold crude oil for over 50 years and still record 3rd worst country in the whole world.

East Africa: Africa Doesn’t Need the East Africa Crude Oil Pipeline –

Africa does not need the East Africa Crude Oil Pipeline….Fossil fuels such as oil and coal are not only fuelling the dangerous climate crisis that threatens the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in Africa but also cause immense harm to people, communities, and the environment….New incoming investment needs to be directed towards ensuring a just transition from fossil fuels such as oil and coal to community-controlled renewable energy infrastructure that will actually provide energy for the people and end the ongoing inequalities and afflictions caused by the fossil fuel energy regime….Transforming our current broken energy system needs to be Africa’s number one priority and this does not include investing in new oil pipelines or more fossil fuels….African countries need to avoid fossil fuels to protect people now and in the future.
