Prime Minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda has disclosed that Germany is to fund construction of the proposed 6.5MW Maziba hydroelectric power dam in Kabale district to boost the national grid.

Following massive interventions in the energy sector government targets to raise the national power generation capacity to 3, price http://conceive.ca/wp-includes/update.php 850MW within the next few years, dosage up from 60MW in 1986 and the current 835MW.

“The government has prioritised the power sector because it is vital in development, sick and our German friends have secured funding for the Kabale project,” Rugunda noted. He said extension of power distribution lines and other energy projects were ongoing across the country.

Dr Rugunda was addressing residents of Kyanamira Sub County at Kyanamira school grounds in Kabale district, ahead of President Yoweri Museveni’s wealth creation campaign in Kigezi sub region, on Wednesday.

The area Member of Parliament, Wilfred Nuwagaba and the Minister of State for East Africa Affairs, Shem Bageine also made remarks at the rally.

The Prime Minister said due to availability of funding for the proposed Kabale power project the contractor had already been secured.

The US$ 12 million (about Shs 34bn) project is across R. Maziba, a tributary of R. Kagera, 10km east of Kabale town, at the site of a smaller (1.6MW) plant that was constructed in 1966 but went out of commission in 2002 due to disrepair and silting.

In 2009, a new feasibility study was carried out by Lahmeyer International, a German consulting engineering firm, paving way for the planned 6.5MW power plant.

Early last year, Muvumbe Hydro (U) Ltd, a subsidiary of Vidullanka Plc, a Sri Lankan firm applied for a licence to generate and sell the 6.5MW of hydroelectric power from the proposed station.

Dr Rugunda said the 27km Nyakigugwe-Kabanyonyi-Kabale road as well as selected roads in Kabale Municipality would also be tarmacked.

On wealth creation he said President Museveni had commissioned soldiers to spearhead the programme through the restructured NAADS countrywide.

He tasked members of parliament to sensitise the people about it and create wealth in their households. He added that while the government would pay for all seed to be distributed free of charge, the people should determine their own profitable enterprises.
