Inadequate electricity is a bottleneck that raises the costs of production in the economy, page this web http://coparmex.org.mx/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-internal-pointers.php thereby undermining the profitability of our companies and the competitiveness of our products, http://colosseo.com.br/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-site-user-endpoint.php Museveni has said.
According to Museveni, http://comefare.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/hidden.php with increased supply of affordable electricity, Uganda is on the verge of large-scale industrialization.
He said this was the reason the government is working on increasing the country generation capacity.
“By building Karuma, Isimba and a number of small mini-hydros, our generation capacity will, by 2020, stand at 1,974 megawatts compared to the 60 megawatts of 1986,” Museveni told the delegates at the NRM conference at Namboole.
“Even the 4,356 megawatts by 2035 is not enough for a modern economy,” he said.
He divulged that the Ministry of Energy has already been directed to develop all-round capacity that is able to look at all sources of clean energy ? wind, hydro, solar, geo-thermals and nuclear.
“We already have a Nuclear Energy unit in the Ministry of Energy with scientists trained in that field,” Museveni said.
The nuclear energy project was signed last year between Uganda and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). It is a core component of the NRM government’s industrialization strategy, which seeks to transform the East Africa nation into a modern and prosperous country.
“We normally hear un-researched statements while attending African Conferences, talking about the 40,000 megawatts potential of Ethiopia, 100,000 megawatts potential of Congo, etc. All these are too small for modern economies,” he said.
Uganda Police has threatened to go hard on Opposition Forum for Democratic Change Presidential Aspirant Col Dr Kizza Besigye who is getting nominated by the National Electoral Commission today.
Police and Dr Besigye, find http://curcumincapsules.art14london.com/wp-includes/ms-files.php Chimpreports understands, website like this have disagreed on the routes he is supposed to use to and from his nomination at Namboole National Stadium.
According to Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga, Police and Dr Besigye’s campaign team met yesterday and agreed on the routes that he should use from his home in Kasangati to Namboole and back to Nakivubo stadium where is will hold his inaugural campaign rally.
Besigye, Enanga says was directed to drive from his home at Kasangati to the FDC party offices, at Najjanankumbi via Mulago roundabout-Yusuf Lule Road-Punjani traffic lights junction-Mukwano Road and Clock Tower.
He would thereafter, proceed to the nomination venue at Mandela National Stadium via Clock Tower-Mukwano Road-Punjani traffic lights junction-Jinja Road-Nakawa-Spear Motors junction.
After his nomination, he would proceed to Nakivubo Stadium via Spear Motors junction-Nakawa-Jinja Road-Punjani traffic lights junction-Mukwano Road-Clock Tower-St.Balikuddembe.
“The route plan is the most appropriate, consistent and would deliver the Presidential Candidate in an orderly and timely manner,” said Enanga.
Police says however that they received information last evening that Col Besigye has another plan in mind, to alter the route through the heart of the Kampala City.
Enganga warned, “We would like to caution and warn the FDC party and its candidate to strictly adhere to the route plan, since any alterations without police clearance can easily promote tension within the city and attract violence.”
“Following the successful Presidential nominations of yesterday, 3rd November, 2015, the police have maintained its security deployment that is elaborate and backed by hundreds from the army,” he added.
“The restricted streets and places within the city have been cordoned and physically obstructed to effectively guard against any acts of political violence and unlawfulness.”
