The vultures are circling: Have you visited Murchison falls yet?
By Caroline Ariba
Not many words will be needed to express how very easily we could lose Murchison falls. So, question: have you visited Murchison falls yet? I mean, while it is still intact, have you seen its thunderous glory? Forget the first shut down, this conversation is fully back on the table. We could actually lose the waterfalls, just like that!
Despite having scanty information, a full minister tried to claim it was the twin falls, Uhuru, that was the target and that it was a whole 26kms away. That's not the truth, not one bit! But history is proof that what the supposedly pro-radical-development lot want, the *extreme-capitalists*, the get it at any cost lot want, they will get.
Budongo forest will now be turned into a sugar cane growing yard while the tree-cutting rumour in Mabira keeps gaining ground. "Are we this anti-nature," we might wonder, but well, it looks like they could care less. I refuse to digress, however tempting, it's honestly exhausting. For now, the vultures are circling, go and see Murchison falls while you still can.
