Mao advised Ugandans to continue demanding for cheap electricity from government which will help in improving their standards of living.
He, therefore, condemned the National Resistance Movement (NRM) for their “misguided policy” of handing over the energy sector to foreign companies which results in the failure to offer cheap and quality services to Ugandans.
The DP president observed that “the policy of privatising the whole energy sector has led to the creation of three companies which all seek to make profits hence shifting the cost to the last consumer”.
“The electricity sector was split into Uganda Electricity Generation Company (UEGC), Uganda Electricity Transmission Company (UETC) and Uganda Electricity Distribution Company (UEDC) from Uganda Electricity Board (UEB),” Mao explained.
