    Why people are doing this… Please don't kill mother nature, it is not only our home but also animals. They are equally important as human's. Some big hand should stop all this cruelty.

    They need to stop this, also that activist at 0:43 is not there, looks like a picture behind a green screen. Uganda is so big this sugar plantation could be built well away from this forest. Ruin a forest of that size you ruin rain that falls and contributes to some of the start of the river nile which will have impact on other countries including Egypt.

    Sheila Nduhukire the pro of Hoima Sugar doesn't know the owners. Very shameful. We want our forests not sugar. Africans can survive without taking sugar. Even it causes diabetes.
