Uganda to allow sugarcane plantation in virgin forest
Frank Muramuzi, a leader of the "Save Mabira Committee", the organisation that spearheaded the 2007 demonstrations, said meetings had already begun to stop the new plan.
"The President is daydreaming, we're now even more determined and the country is going to be more united in its opposition to destroying Mabira, so he should forget it," Muramuzi said.
Uganda, which is east Africa's third largest economy has been hit by a spate of economic protests since April, triggered by sky-high commodity prices.
