Kalangala Infrastructure Services Ltd (KIS), doctor http://couragelion.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/custom-css/csstidy/class.csstidy_ctype.php the company developing infrastructure and transport services on Bugala Island under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) with the Government of Uganda, salve has delivered the second and final ferry that will provide marine transportation services between Bukakata in Masaka and Luuku landing site on Bugala Island.
The soon to be commissioned MS MV Ssese, price arrived at Port bell on the December 24 for a seaworthiness inspection by the Ministry of Works after sailing from the port of Mwanza in Tanzania where it was fabricated.
Speaking at Port Bell upon the arrival of the new ferry John Opiro the Managing Director of KIS said “delivery of the second ferry is tangible evidence of our ability to deliver on our promises and that the project is reaching the maturity stage thereby increasingly benefiting the islands inhabitants.”
He added: “The power plant is already serving parts of Kalangala town, the road is being worked upon and the water project is already serving a large portion of the islands residents. We are confident that once all the four project components have been completed Bugala Island will be a very different place with infrastructure and services comparable with those on the mainland”.
Commenting about the impact the arrival of the MS SSese is expected to have the PS Ministry of Works and Transport, Mr. Okello Bwangamoi said, “the timing of the second ferry is perfect given that the people of Bugala have been suffering from a shortage of safe marine transportation services for quite some time. The MV Kalangala was taken for repairs and has not yet returned while the MV Amani has not been operating due to technical issues. We welcome the arrival of this ferry which shall give the islands economy a much needed shot in the arm.”
He commended KIS for delivering the ferry and other infrastructure projects on the island, saying, this is “a textbook example of how a PPP should be operated and managed.”
He urged other companies to take heed of the KIS blueprint and follow suit.
Commenting about the current demand for ferry services to and from Bugala, John noted that the figures had grown exponentially especially in the build up to the festive season.
“We are currently doing twelve crossings per day on Mondays – Fridays and ten crossings on Saturdays as opposed to the four scheduled trips we were supposed to do with the first ferry the MV Pearl. Despite this, we are still unable to transport all the people and vehicles who want to cross on any given day and some people have to be left behind till the next day. The arrival of the second ferry will ease this problem because will be able to double the number of crossings.”
In closing remarks, he reassured commuters that “the new ferry would be operated just like the MV Pearl with no one being charged for the crossings”.
He explained that as per UNRA policy, the ferry is considered an extension of the road and that no one is required to pay for the crossing which is essentially a “bridge to the island”.
The MV Ssese has the capacity to safely transport 180 passengers seated and standing as well as about 20 vehicles depending on their weight. Just like the MV Pearl, the Ssese has the capacity to make the crossing between Bukakata and Luku in just 25 minutes.

This only didn’t unfold as planned, page and the crowds that escorted him to his house in Naguru were clearly disappointing.
He nonetheless had one more up the sleeve, buy and that was some dance moves not quite expected of a 60 year old Army General.
