By Milton Olupot THE environmental pressure group opposed to the Bujagali Dam construction has dismissed claims by the Busoga Kingdom that they are self-seekers, calling themselves global environment crusaders. Busoga Kingdom last week described the environmentalists decampaigning the project as self-seekers. The activists went on a tour of Europe and the US lobbying against the project. Representatives of the team, returning from an international campaign against the construction of the hydroelectric dam on the River Nile said their campaign had been successful. Frank Muramuzi president of the National Association of Professional Environmentalists (NAPE) said on return from the trip that they had lobbied the World Bank to delay the release of the US$550m for the dam construction. Muramuzi travelled to the US, Norway and Sweden with Busoga deputy prime minister Martin Musumba. Busoga criticised Musumba for going against the Kingdom’s position. Muramuzi, flanked by Oweyegha-Afunaduula, the deputy coordinator save Bujagali crusade, also member of NAPE and lecturer at the department of Zoology, Makerere University, accused the Government of ignoring issues of concern.
