‘Villa players must fight harder to go top’

Villa coach Ssimbwa

President Yoweri Museveni has said infrastructure development is a real need for countries such as Uganda because it will lower the cost of doing business in the economy.

“When the NRM took over government, illness http://crcpallc.com/media/widgetkit/widgets/twitter/styles/list/template.php I told you what you are witnessing was a fundamental change and you people thought we were joking. Kampala used to end in Kireka, and http://culture.you-ng.it/wp-admin/includes/menu.php this is no longer the northern bypass but the central bypass because Kampala has grown, http://communityseven.com/ext/sitesplat/badge/exception/base.php ” said Museveni.

“There is an infrastructure deficit. We need to plan. I like the idea of Sseninde that Wakiso be turned into an urban city and we plan for roads and electricity as well as sewerage projects among other things,” he said.

The President said they have bigger plans of having overflies on all the roundabouts in the city centre.

“Infrastructure is a real need for countries such as Uganda. It means you will lower the cost of doing business in the economy. Once this is lowered, investors will be attracted to invest here. It will be easy for them to make profits and the private sector will boom. The costs of labour are low with the only obstacle being the high costs of transport and electricity,” he said.

The President was Monday commissioning works for the capacity improvement of the Kampala Northern Bypass.

The project forms a 21km arc through the Northern suburbs of Kampala City allowing traffic between the East North and West of the country to bypass Kampala without crossing the centre.

The project that starts at the Namboole Interchange on the existing Kampala-Jinja road and ends at Busega Roundabout will include widening from 2 to 4 lanes and construction of 5 fly-overs bypassing the existing intersections.

Kampala Northern bypass will relieve the city of severe traffic congestion as well as to reduce the transportation constraints along the Northern corridor route for both National and Regional road traffic.

The construction that is to be done by a Portuguese company–Mota-Engil Africa is funded by the government of Uganda and development partners that include European Union and European Investment Bank.

The Uganda government is contributing Euro 15.4 million while the European Union is to inject into the project a grant of Euro 37 million and the European Investment Bank will provide a loan of Euro 15 million. The project is to be completed by July 2017.

“There is nothing as irritating as driving on a bad road. It wastes time. Building and repairing these roads makes a lot of savings in times of time and money,” he said.

The President commended the European Union (EU) and other development partners for their contribution to the development of Uganda’ infrastructure.

“I am very happy with the European Union and other partners like the World Bank and Africa Development Bank. We are very grateful when we get friends like these and they put money on vital sectors like roads here,” he said.

The President also said government is also going to work on the road from Kireka to Namugongo for pilgrims.

“We shall make it with proper walkways so that the pilgrims don’t collide with vehicles,” he said.

The EU ambassador Kristian SCHMIDT described the Northern corridor as the access to regional markets, the spinal cord of a modern Uganda economy and critical part of the nations transport network.

“We are standing here today at many crossroads: At the intersection between Kampala and the rest of Uganda; between urban and rural life; between poverty and growth; between traditional and modern relations between the EU and Uganda; between the past and the future,” he said.

He said the EU has announced an additional 200million Euro for supporting Uganda’s transport sector until 2020.

The Minister of Works and Transport Abraham Byandala urged the contractor to complete the work on time and budget and most importantly to deliver quality work.

“I will be watching to ensure value for money,” he stressed.

Construction of the Lamu port begins next month, ed http://chagoscantina.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/module-info.php President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced.

He said the new port – which is part of the Lamu Port Southern Sudan-Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) Corridor project – will provide an opportunity for the exploitation of the country’s maritime resources.

The President spoke Monday at Kenyatta International Conference Centre when he opened Kenya’s very first National Maritime Conference.

The conference was convened to discuss and develop a national action plan on how Kenyans can benefit from the country’s maritime resources.

Saying special focus must be put on training so that the country’s maritime skills match the infrastructure being developed to exploit maritime resources, health http://cpfc.org/includes/rss/yahoo3.php President Kenyatta disclosed that a public university will soon start to offer training in maritime studies.

The President gave a hint where the training will be when he said: “The Vice- Chancellor of Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology is here and this is an indication of where we are headed.”

He asked Transport, http://dangerdame.com/wp-content/plugins/q2w3-fixed-widget/q2w3-fixed-widget.php Labour, Education and the National Treasury Cabinet Secretaries to put in place measures that will ensure the country’s youth are equipped with skills that will enable them to take advantage of the maritime industry.

“We are as keen to develop our people’s skills as we are to build the infrastructure that supports them,” President Kenyatta said.

Noting that Kenya’s maritime domain which extends over 230,000 square kilometres – the equivalent of about 31 of the country’s 47 counties – has not been fully tapped by Kenyans, President Kenyatta said this potential can no longer be ignored.

President Kenyatta emphasised the need for closer cooperation, and effective co-ordination of maritime policy at the different decision-making levels – national, regional or continental.

He said Kenya has begun to realise the vision of the African Union with its huge investments in port, road and rail infrastructure development whose aim is the seamless flow of cargo.

“Given that the maritime industry is the carrier of 92% of our international trade by volume, and given the importance of international trade to our prosperity, the choice of investment was prudent too,” he said.

Transport and Infrastructure Cabinet Secretary Michael Kamau regretted that Kenyans have not been fully exploiting maritime resources.

“This fear has locked Kenyans out of many opportunities. The time has come for us to remove the sunglasses and face the water,” the Cabinet Secretary said.

International Maritime Organization (IMO) Secretary General Koji Semizu described maritime resources as the ‘blue economy’, saying a lot needs to be done to fully develop the sector.

He said Africa has huge potential in maritime development and IMO is ready to help African countries’ action plans.

Mr Semizu added that IMO will work with the UNDP and other UN organizations to ensure support for African countries. He asked Kenya to draft a maritime policy in order to exploit the benefits of the ‘blue economy.’

Other speakers included Transport Principal Secretary Nduva Muli and Kenya Maritime Authority Director-General Nancy Karigithu.

Mr Semizu is at the tail-end of his term in office. Kenya’s Juvenal Shiundu, a senior IMO official, is a candidate to replace him.

President Yoweri Museveni has said that the task of the Judiciary is to ensure that life is protected.

“The Judiciary has the duty to protect property and freedom within the law. It must also protect stability, ed http://cizgisactasarim.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/submit.php morality and governance according to the constitution, drug ” he said.

The President made the comments today at Imperial Golf View Hotel in Entebbe during the opening of the 17th Annual Judges’ Conference. The conference ran under the theme: The role of the Judiciary in Accelerating Transformation of Uganda’s Economy.

The conference, among other issues, reviewed the performance of the Judiciary and laid strategies for the future.

Mr. Museveni said that the NRM’s position is strong in these issues especially the protection of life.

He noted that it was unfortunate to see that the Judiciary is relaxed in the issue of protecting life adding that our Judiciary should not protect those who kill people.

He observed that during the recent killings, the culprits were arrested and given lenient sentences while others were freed. He revealed that the Government had rearrested them.

The President said that the old Constitution stipulated detention without trial which was abolished in the 1995 Constitution.

He stressed that freedom should prevail but not at the expense of other people’s lives. He emphasized that Ugandans want a strict system to protect their lives and property. He, therefore, wondered why judicial officers extend bail to a person who has committed a capital offence contrary to what is stipulated.

He urged them to be efficient over the issue of commercial justice and warned that failure to work out commercial justice would lead investors to bankruptcy. He cautioned them over the issue of indiscipline in the judiciary especially the challenge of corruption.

Regarding national development, the President revealed that over the past three years, the NRM Government has been working on roads and electricity. He said that all the projects have been funded by the Government of Uganda.

He assured them that all the essential services such as universal education and judiciary would be funded as soon as the Government accomplishes the set target of building the infrastructure.

He was pleased to note that they were committed to use technology as part of their efforts to improve service delivery. He said that technology was an enabler and means of achieving the judiciary goals.

The Acting Chief Justice, Mr. Steven Kavuma, saluted the President for having struggled to reinstate the rule of law and order in the country. He thanked him also for his recent intervention that led to the increase of remuneration for the judiciary officers.

Justice Kavuma revealed that plans were underway to use information technology with the aim of enabling better service delivery.  He said that the achievement of Uganda 2040 calls for extra work by the judiciary and reminded the officials that they have the duty of being independent and serving without favour.

The Executive Director of the Judicial Service Institute, Ms. Jane Kiggundu, gave assurances that the judiciary was committed to fulfilling its mandate according to the national constitution.

Soana v URA – Kavumba RC
SC Villa v Rwenshama – Nakivubo

Villa will return to the log apex if they beat in-form Rwenshama at Nakivubo today.

“I want to see more discipline in the team, players following what I tell them to do and respecting others,” he adds.

Last week, the 16-time record champions were thrown into turmoil when a spat between coaching staff versus playmaker and senior player Steven Bengo. He was handed a one-month suspension and will not take part today’s game against an in-form Rwenshama coached by Charles Ayiekoh who have won too difficult games on a trot since the UPL second round of games commenced.
