Uganda’s President on DDT Critics

museveniIn a recent State of the Nation speech, Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni laments impediments to life-saving uses of DDT caused by DDT critics: “Having gone through a rigorous systematic approach on the use of DDT for Indoor Residual Spraying as elaborated above, it is not only disturbing but quite insulting to hear some individuals and at times groups claiming to be the champions of protection of the environment going around misleading the public that no scientific studies and preparations have been made about the use of DDT. Since they also ridicule the World Health Organisation which is the International Standard Setter in health matters, one only wonders where they derive their authority!”
