President Yoweri Museveni has sternly warned the Egyptian “government and other groups” against making “chauvinist and irrational statements” in the wake of Ethiopia’s decision to construct a multi-billion dollar electricity dam, Chimp Corps report.

I have seen in the print media statements coming out of Egypt regarding the commendable work of the Government of Ethiopia of building dams for electricity in that country,” said Museveni.

This is what the whole of Africa needs to do. That is one reason the economy of Ethiopia has been growing in double digits. It is, therefore, advisable that the new Government of Egypt and some chauvinistic groups inside Egypt should not repeat the mistakes of the past Egyptian Governments,” he added.

Reflecting the feelings of most Africans President Yoweri Museveni said “It is therefore advisable that the new government of Egypt doesn’t repeat the mistakes of the past [Egyptian] regimes.” “The Egyptians think that the threat of the Nile is building dams on it…The biggest threat of the Nile is the continued underdevelopment of countries in the tropics,”  Museveni said in reference to the loss of forest cover [for wood fuel] that the upper stream riparian countries suffer from as a result of not utilizing the Nile to build hydro-power dams to provide cheap electricity.“No African wants to hurt Egypt, however, Egypt cannot continue to hurt Black Africa,”.

Meanwhile Ethiopia's foreign ministry said on Wednesday Ethiopia has no intention of suspending construction of the Ethiopian Grand Renaissance Dam the biggest hydro electric plant in Africa.

The Egyptian minister of foreign affairs Mohamed Kamel Amr is expected to arrive in Addis Ababa on June 16, 2013 for talks regarding the Ethiopian Grand Renaissance Dam. We would have liked the Ethiopian government to insist on the Egyptians apologize first for openly threatening Ethiopia before any talks.

We don’t see the point for the Egyptian minister of foreign affairs coming to Ethiopia at this point. If Egypt is serious about situation it should stop the nonsense of colonial treaty and sign the new Nile River Cooperative Framework Agreement and see what their share of the Nile waters would be. The Egyptians should know by now they will never ever get 87% of the Nile waters. It is about time for Egypt to act like a desert country instead of the owners of the Nile River.
