UEGCL to oversee Karuma and Isimba Projects


President Yoweri Museveni has directed the Uganda Electricity Generation Company Limited to oversee the construction of Karuma and Isimba power projects. The two projects have been a subject of bickering between different government institutions, leaving contractors to get away with shoddy works. The decision was reached during a meeting with members of the Natural Resources Committee of Parliament, Engineer Dr. Badru Kiggundu chaired by the President. The different committee investigating the shoddy works reported the same technical deficiencies and supervisory weaknesses.
