With the thirty-sixth Ordinary Session of the African Union Assembly of Heads of State being held in Ethiopia over the weekend of February 18 and 19, civil society organisations have called for the AU to play a more ambitious role in creating a fossil fuel-free energy future in Africa.
CSOs have begun circulating a report titled the ‘Fossil Fuelled Fallacy’ to Heads of State and Ministers attending the AU meeting.
...“Instead of selling away fossil fuel extraction rights to big multinational companies, African leaders should invest in clean, renewable energies that will directly benefit people across the continent without damaging their health,” Don't Gas Africa campaigns lead Dean Bhekumuzi Bhebhe said.
