Abstract:In general, African legislation on water pollution can be divided into two groups: those laws which deal generally with water pollution and which may find application against oil pollution and those laws which deal exclusively with oil pollution. The amount of African legislation which could conceivably deal with the problem of oil pollution is not staggering; most of the laws discussed in this paper were basically water rights laws. 1.
