This will not happen instantly but over a short period of time.”

“Our machines are very capable. There is no cause for alarm,” Muloni elaborated.

Onek, now Internal Affairs Minister, told Parliament last Wednesday that Energy Permanent Secretary Kabagambe Kaliisa lied to President Yoweri Museveni that Bujagali would generate 270MW instead of 170MW.

Analysts were baffled by the timing of Onek’s startling revelations.

There is growing fear Onek intends to draw the sympathy of legislators now baying for his political blood after his alleged bribery scandal. MPs have insisted Onek must step down as Minister for reportedly receiving bribes to the tune of millions of Euros from oil company Tullow last year.

“Ugandans should prepare to receive Bujagali with open hands. It will boost industrialisation and curb the rampant load shedding in our country,” Muloni elaborated.

The press briefing kicks off at 10:45am.
