The delegation included Ryosaku Sudo, the Tanaka Hydraulic Machinery Works Company Limited managing director, Satoshi Minagaki, manager at the same company and Koichi Hagimara, an industrial development officer at the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO).

Hagimara said at a dinner organised by Rural Electrification Agency (REA) Secretariat at Fair Cuts Restaurant in Kampala that the delegation come to identify a pilot site for a micro-hydro and a partner with whom to develop the projects.
"We are very excited because we achieved our objectives in one day. We have Sezibwa Falls in Mukono," said Hagimara. He said Sezibwa Falls would become the pilot project for the five other micro-hydro projects to be developed by the Tamaka Company, funded by UNIDO under the Grassroots Programme.
