Museveni Says Government investment in Infrastructure isn’t Politics.
President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni officiated at the ground-breaking ceremony for the 132kv Kole-Gulu-Nebbi-Arua electricity transmission line and commissioned Electro-Maxx thermal power plant where he disputed the move that Government investment in infrastructure development is politically inspired.
“Some people had tried to politicize the issue of electricity supply to West Nile but reality was that Government did not have enough money.” Museveni stated.
He added that as revenues improve, Government has started the upgrading of infrastructure and it will get better.
Museveni congratulated the management of Electro-Maxx led by Patrick Bitature who have set up an 8MW thermo Power Plant in Arua, which The President said will compliment Government’s efforts to power the region and industrialize it.
He also opened Joadah Consult, a value-addition processing factor on the same day.
