UEDCL and UETCL to Oversee Karuma and Isimba


The Ugandan government has assigned two of its implementing agencies to oversee the construction and completion of Karuma and Isimba power projects. Uganda Electricity Generation Company Limited and the Uganda Transmission Company Limited have taken over this role from the ministry of energy which was directly supervising the two projects. The two projects have been a subject of bickering between the different government institutions, leaving contractors to get away with shoddy works.
