Uganda in USD5.5M Rural Electrification Deal with the World Bank

Over half a million Ugandans living in rural areas are yet to benefit from the global partnership on output based aid programmee that is geared at financing the rural electrification programmee in the country to boost the lives of Ugandans living in rural areas.

The four year programmee worth US $.5.5M funded by World Bank has been flagged off today after the signing of a pact between government and World Bank in Kampala at the ministry of finance.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, the finance minister, Maria Kiwanuka stated that this programmee will improve people’s lives as they will then be able to use electricity to do more income generating activities which they were not able to do before the introduction of power in their areas.

However, the World Bank country director, Moustapha Ndiaye advised government to focus more on extending power to rural areas to enable them develop themselves just like others in urban areas.

Currently 4% of the country’s rural populace are accessing electricity but with this finding, development partners and government target to scale up accessibility to 22%
