Sickening, my heart goes out to those poor children.

The East African country of Uganda has no proven oil or gas resources, although there are signs that the western Rift Valley may contain hydrocarbon deposits. Recently, Uganda joined forces with neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo to explore possible oil reserves in the lake district which lies on their common border.

There may be hope for these children yet: this articletalks about the search for oil in Uganda. Maybe if they find some, gwb can come and liberate these children, and bring a little democracy 'round at the same time.
