President attacks CSOs for challenging the oil bill

While addressing parliament on December 13, the president attacked Global Rights Alert and other Civil Society Organisations and accused them for misleading and paying off people to sabotage the oil bill.

GRA was among the CSOs that wanted clause nine of the bill which gives the Minister of Energy unlimited powers in the sector to be changed.

The CSOs wanted the Minister of Energy to work alongside the Petroleum Authority something the president was against.
