The Minister of Uganda for Water, Jennifer Namuyangu has said African states on the upper side of River Nile will meet in Entebbe on Friday.

They want to change some sections of the colonial treaty that gives Egypt more powers to use the waters of River Nile.

Namuyangu says Egypt angers African states on upper side of River Nile when it sticks to treaties made during colonial-era that guarantee only Egypt to use the river waters maximally.
Namuyangu says Egypt and other countries in the Nile Basin will sign a framework agreement they reached at in 2009.

 

She says the signing of the agreement will kick off the grand opening of the Permanent Nile Commission.
