Museveni commisions Electricity Transmission Line in Kayunga Uganda


President Yoweri Museveni has promised that his government will intensify efforts to extend electricity to rural areas in Uganda.

Museveni, who underscored the importance of electricity in poverty eradication, was commissioning the Nazigo-Kirindi and Busana-Nabuganyi power lines in Kayunga district on Friday. The two power lines serve at least eight trading centres: Nazigo, Kirindi, Nakakonge, Bukamba, Kiwangula, Wampologoma, Busana and Kasana, as well as Nabuganyi landing site and several villages in the district.

The lines have already been handed over to Umeme for maintenance. The President implored the people to take advantage of the electricity to improve their household incomes. “You used to say you can’t make money because there is no electricity. Now you have no excuse,” he said at Kirindi trading centre.

Museveni, who was accompanied by state ministers Simon D’Ujanga (Energy), Suleiman Madada (Elderly and Persons with Disabilities) and Ronald Kibuule (Youth), said the government plans to extend electricity to many more rural areas.

“We’re improving on power generation, which will enable us to extend power to rural areas. By July this year, the Bujagali power project will be complete; so, we expect more electricity” he said at Nazigo trading centre.

Museveni, however, reminded residents that electricity is not free and urged them to work hard to be able to pay for it. D’Ujanga said the project was implemented under the Rural Electrification Agency (REA).
