Museveni launches environment war

President Museveni has launched a war against encroachment of wetlands and the entire environmental degradation, saying it is compromising Uganda’s economic development.
Launching the Youth Go Green campaign at the northern Bypass, president Museveni castigated the reluctance of leaders to deal with wetland  encroachers.
He cited the rising rate of Eucalyptus trees in the western region swamps and the large amount of cultivation covering most of Uganda’s river banks and swamps.
