Kigali-RWANDA-South Sudan Minister of water Paul Mayom Akech, has said Egypt and Sudan should consider signing the Nile Basin Commission pact since they can’t be left out only.

“We have been in contact with Egypt and Sudan, asking them to sign the pact due to the fact that they can’t do business alone.” Akech said

South Sudan’ Akek is participating in the Nile Basin 20th Ministerial meeting taking place in Rwanda’s capital Kigali under the chairmanship of Rwanda’s Stanislas Kamanzi.

Hisham kandil, Minister of water in Egypt said “we shall sign the pact when we feel the pact is fair for the people of Egypt.”

“Actually, we are not refusing to sign because we want not to sign. We shall sign this pact when it’s giving us an alternative. In Egypt, we depend only and only on Nile waters.” Kadil said

Akech of South Sudan told the media that he’s confident that today’s meeting will accept their request to join Nile Basin Commission and the whole Nile Basic Initiative at large.

Three millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa are with-out safe drinking water. DR Congo, Egypt and Sudan are the only countries out of nine countries of the river Nile beneficiaries who are yet to sign the equal sharing of Nile waters pact.

Tanzanian representative says the equal sharing of Nile basin waters will solve the Millennium developments goals mainly access to safe drinking water.
