Scribes and the nation were left shocked as Museveni strode to neighbouring rooms in search of a lamp.

He returned minutes later to continue with the address. Ugandans expressed their shock on social networking websites twitter and face book.

Amidst this humiliation, UMEME has now embarked on a radical project to ensure such a scenario never happens again in Uganda’s history.

The power distributors tweeted today: “UMEME regrets to inform its customers around Lumumba Avenue, Rwenzori House, Rwenzori Courts, Royal Danish Embassy, Twed Plaza and Buganda Road flats that they shall experience power interruptions today, 14th Oct 2011 between 1245 and 1400 hrs, as repairs are carried out in Nakasero.”

Despite being hugely subsidised by public funds, UMEME, which could hardly maintain grid during a President’s three-hour address, is yet to publish a national apology for the scandal!

The incident reflected the darkness the country faced in areas of energy and economy underlined UMEME’s growing inefficiency.
