    Where are we heading to as a continent if the climate activists are being denied their right to protect mother nature?

      Quite disheartening. President Museveni can do better. Him being old means that he knows for sure he has no doubt that climate change is real.

        No one should face violence, imprisonment, or charges for advocating for the safety of our planet. Their courage and dedication to environmental activism should be celebrated, not punished.

              What a shame, the government of Uganda must listen to the voice of climate activists without hurting them, this is dictatorial.

                    Uganda government is not doing justice !Why beat students who are doing peaceful demonstration ?This is very bad .Climate activist should not be categorized as law breakers since what they are doing is right.
