Gordon Tapper, President of the United African Congress joins with UAC Chairman, Mohammed Nurhussein MD in an appeal to the African Union to facilitate negotiations between Ethiopia, Egypt and the Sudan with a view to finding a peaceful resolution to the matter of the filling of the dam that Ethiopia has constructed and is getting ready to begin filling. The Blue Nile which is almost entirely in Ethiopoia is the main source of the River Nile and  Ethiopia has built this dam to provide water for agriculture and to provide electricity on a massive scale. Egypt on the other hand believes that the dam will seriously affect the flow of water into their country and has expressed  a willingness to resolve the matter militarily if Ethiopia does not agree to fill the dam over 15 year period or more . That needs to be avoided.
