“There is a general feeling that power tariffs are too high and unnecessary costs are pushed to the consumer. Our people don’t want to be cheated. We may need to review some of the power agreements to ensure equity,” the Speaker noted.


Kadaga confirmed that the projected national demands for both hydro and thermal energy are quite high. She said Parliament was keen to ensure access to energy sources by all.


“Everyone wants the entire country connected to the electricity grid. The current demands for power and the rate of industrialization are high. What we want is more power and at reasonably affordable prices,” the Speaker stressed.


Eskom Holdings Chairman Zola Tsotsi reaffirmed the Company’s commitment to ensure long term provision of affordable energy to the Ugandans and the African continent.


“We would like to state our desire to be part and parcel of the expansion of the energy sector in Uganda. We are here to stay and we shall continue working to the best of our ability to meet the demands for energy,” he said.
