Announcing the development at a ceremony held to commission and flag off the wagons in Mombasa, sale Carlos de Andrade RVR’s group CEO said their arrival will be a game changer for the company.

“So far we have been limited as regards the volume of freight we are able to move because of the size and quality of the wagons we inherited, many of which were built more than 30 years ago. For the first time since we took over the concession RVR will be deploying wagons that are purpose built for modern rail transport operations, both in terms of capacity and their condition,” he said.

“Crucially the new wagons are a lot more cost effective per trip which means we will be able to reduce our freight charges considerably and become a lot more competitive than the roads which are already overburdened with traffic,” he added.

“We are confident once the new wagons are put into service along with the 20 GE locomotives that recently arrived we will enable us to increase the volume of business we are handling at the port and eventually allow us to fully utilize the newly opened inland container port in Mukono which has the capacity to handle 1,644 units at any time and 36,500 per year containers a year and is expected to play a major role in our business growth,” the group CEO said.

Speaking about the impact the new wagons are expected to have on transport and infrastructure on the northern corridor RVR’s General Manager, Concession & External Communications, Mr. Sammy Gachuhi said the additional capacity means the railway is now positioned to even surpass the impressive freight volumes numbers achieved last year.

RVR had by January 31, 2015 moved 1,883 mn NTK of freight against a target of 1,737 mn NTK by March 31, 2015 in Kenya. The corresponding figures for Uganda were 250mn NTK of freight moved as at February 25, 2015 against a target of 250 mn NTK by March 31, 2015.

RVR is currently at the midpoint of a US$ 287 million capital expenditure program that began in January 2012 to revitalize the railway. Since the start of the renewal program, RVR has invested US$ 126 million in modern rail operating technology, rebuilding infrastructure, expanding haulage capacity and developing modern rail operating skills in its 2,400 strong workforce.

RVR has also completed the rehabilitation of the most damaged sections of the railway track between Mombasa and Nairobi and rehabilitated and reopened the 500 km railway from Tororo to Gulu in northern Uganda after a 20-year hiatus.

Installation of satellite tracking and GPS-based technology on all trains helped cut cargo transit times between Mombasa and Nairobi by six hours.

President Museveni has lashed at members of the opposition for always attacking him over the unfulfilled pledges and other things he has tackled saying they are ignorant about the Bible.

Museveni said during creation, ampoule http://dchnf.dk/wp-content/themes/shop-isle/inc/big-title-section.php God spent a number of days creating the earth and took His time – just like he is dealing with Uganda’s problems.

“The opposition members have never read the Bible in the book of Genesis. During the story of creation, http://ctabuenosaires.org.ar/wp-admin/includes/network.php God created one thing on Monday, http://chuaxuattinhsom.info/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/omnisearch/omnisearch-core.php another one on Tuesday until when he created man on the last day and on Sunday He rested,” Museveni said while addressing a rally at Wiggins Secondary School, Kumi Municipality in Kumi district on Tuesday.

“They always say I have not done this and that but yes, I know it. You cannot do all the things at the same time but start with the priorities and later address the others.”

He said that through prioritisation, Uganda has been able to enjoy good roads and electricity in almost every district apart from Kotido, Kabong, Nwoya and Buvuma which he said will soon be added to the national power grid.

Museveni cited an example in the 1980s when he had just gone to the bush and wanted assistance from the then Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi but he focused on getting bullets and guns other than medical supplies.

“Gaddafi asked if he could give us money, clothes or medical supplies but I insisted that we needed guns and bullets. We prioritised the weapons and those other things would come later,” he noted.

He said running government is not only about having correct ideas but also good planning stressing it is the reason his NRM government has stayed for over 30 years in power uninterrupted.

“You can have good ideas but if you don’t have good plans, you cannot do anything good. Past governments had good ideas but never lasted for long.”

“We had a man called Yusuf Lule who was 68 years and his government lasted only 68 days but the NRM has lasted 30 years because of good ideas and planning.”

The Good Driver

Museveni said the opposition who are always attacking him for overstaying in power have nothing to show the people unlike him.

“If they say the old man should go, what do they have to show to the people? They have not left any track behind like I have done. When one talks about peace, development and electricity in Uganda, the old man comes into the minds of people.”

He added, “The old man has been driving safely the bus for a long time and has experience. It would be bad if you surrendered your gains to the opposition members.”
