Henry Rugamba, the Heads of communication, said that it’s their duty to fulfill what they promised some time back via different publications before Christmas.

“We have more than 65,000 million share holders and the majority are local people where by customers pay thus enabling us to give back money to different organisations”.

Rugamba also hinted on the new measures they have introduced which have played a great role on improving their services for example YAKA which has decreased power theft.

However, Umeme’s target is to reach areas like Kitintale, Banda and its mission come 2016, is for the whole of Kampala to be on YAKA.

By 2018, YAKA should have reached all upcountry places.

There are some accidents that have occurred already including the two bus accidents that killed 20 people along Sudan- Nimule road and another one that killed a journalist yesterday at Jinja road in Kampala.

Usually, people travel to different places in the festive season to celebrate New Year and Christmas.

Some go to villages to celebrate it with their relatives while others stay behind but they also move a lot trying to do shopping in Kampala.

Drivers thus resort to economic gains as they over speed in order to make more money.

Badru Nyenje, the chairman for Uganda Passengers Protection Association, has urged passengers to be careful about those drivers driving recklessly on the road and also to report those ones driving at an excessive speed.

“It is your right to reach your destinations safely. Endeavour to wear seat belts in the vehicles when travelling because this reduces on the chances of deaths when a vehicle gets an accident,” he said.

Nyenje has also called upon the traffic police to be strict about those drivers who do not want to tie the seat belts in their vehicles and those that drive at a high speed.

He called upon drivers to avoid being money-minded and ensure that passengers reach safely.
