The project will extend the national electric grid by construction of 85km of 132KV transmission line backbone from Mirama 132/33KV substations to the proposed new 132/33KV-2×40 MVA substation in Kabale town, 904 km of 33 KV and 131 Km of low voltage (LV) network in 121 villages.

Information Minister, Rose Namayanja says, “The project aims to provide sustainable power supply in the project area by providing for sufficient power transfers from the cheap hydro-electric power in central Uganda to meet the electricity demand in the region, The project is critical to facilitating the implementation of the rural electrification program, reducing high transmission losses, and improving system efficiency, stability and reliability.”

“It will also contribute towards addressing some of the sector challenges by providing the national grid electricity supply and reduce the use of small isolated electricity with small diesel fuel generators, meeting the huge investments required for electricity transmission and distribution, contributing to increasing the national electricity access rate of 17% and 100% by 2017 and 2040 respectively and help overcome low access rate to electricity in Uganda,” the Minister adds.

Cabinet has also authorized the Minister of Finance, Planning and Economic Development to proceed to parliament in line with Article 159 of the Constitution, to obtain authorization to borrow.

After that they buy power which is charged via a plastic charging card. Kilembe Investments is upgrading the line from a single phase to a three phase line (which is needed for small companies such as cereals mills). BTC will assist the company with the intention of extending the electricity network to remote areas.

The Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) Intelligence team has embarked on rigorous investigations to establish the motive of an alleged new rebel group in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), website http://chuckatuckhistory.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/i18n/states/ir.php Rwenzori region Army spokesperson has disclosed.

Capt. Ceaser Olweny, http://christlutheran.org/wp-includes/ms-functions.php the UPDF publicist for Rwenzori region said, http://classlitigation.com/wp-content/plugins/ubermenu/pro/menuitems/ubermenuitemmenusegment.class.php “Our intelligence is on to establish the basis of this new rebel group. There are rumours that a new rebel group called sikilyamuba meaning (the cowards don’t eat) is regrouping in the DRC.”

He said, “In the DRC, we’ve been fighting the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels, but we don’t know whether this new group has any connection with them (ADF). We are yet to establish.”

When asked whether the ew group has connections with the Rwenzururu kingdom youth group of Esyomango (vigilant youth), Capt.Olweny said, “The intelligence team is yet to ascertain whether they are a serious rebel group or a disgruntled youth group”.

In a telephone interview with our Chimp Corp, Steven Ainganiza, Olweny said there was no cause for panic among the people in the Rwenzori region. He called for calm and said the UPDF is very strong and well prepared for any eventualities.

The Kasese Resident District Commissioner (RDC) Maj. James Mwesige who is the head of security in the district in an interview on Thursday said that according to their intelligence reports gathered, the new group wanted to get in touch with the Rwenzururu disgruntled youth.

He said, “As security, we’re very much prepared to smash any rebel group should it dare to attack the region as we did to ADF rebels,”

According to the Daily Monitor of 16th October, 2014, during the Independence anniversary celebrations held at Rwenzori square the RDC said that the two rebel groups comprised of youth who were part of the attackers during the July 5th Rwenzori tribal clashes and were granted amnesty.

He further urged the Rwenzururu kingdom leadership to desist from acts of armed rebellion but instead concentrate on development issues like farming because government shall have no mercy for them.
