Soipan Tuya, the Environment Cabinet Secretary, has advocated for the use of nuclear energy to combat climate change in Africa. Tuya stated that climate change is an existential problem that requires immediate action during the awarding of winners of an essay writing competition on nuclear energy in Africa on Monday.

“As a people and a generation, nuclear energy is perhaps Africa’s last best hope to addressing climate change and powering sustainable economic development,” she stated. 

The CS stated that under current conditions, nuclear energy is developing as a compelling solution to electricity needs since it provides a clean, reliable, and low-carbon alternative to fossil fuels.

Tuya went on to say that nuclear energy has the ability to alleviate Africa’s severe issue of energy poverty, where up to 600 million people lack access to reliable electricity.
