Where is the Source of the Nile - Part 2

Interesting history about Control over the Nile:

The Exploration of what is today known as the White Nile and Lake Victoria,
and the Blue Nile flowing down from the Ethiopian Highlands.

Today, we know that 80% of the water flowing into Egypt comes from the Blue Nile out of Lake Tana in Ethiopia. At the end of this tape, the Egyptians still feel safe and proclaim that "there are no project at this time to dam the Blue Nile...."

They have been proven wrong. The construction of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (said to go online in 2017) in south-western Ethiopia, close to the Sudanese border, is a rude awakening for downstream countries as it will drastically decrease the flow of the Blue Nile for Sudan and Egypt.

Struggle Over the Nile - Part 1

The Nile Conspiracy
Book 5 of the Legends of the Winged Scarab

This new novel takes the struggle between Egypt and Ethiopia over the Blue Nile waters
as its basis for more action and adventure
to be overcome by Naunet and Jonathan Wilkins.
