Jun 11, 2007 02:00 AM

The government has signed an agreement with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) for the setting up of power lines aimed at rural electrification in various districts in the country.
The project codenamed: JICA Rural Electrification Phase II, will involve power lines from Nabitende to Itanda in Iganga district, Kagadi to Munteme in Hoima and Kabaale districts, Bugeso to Iwemba in Bugiri and Musaka to Bukakata in Masaka and Kalangala districts.

While signing the contract, the Permanent Secretary in the ministry of Energy and Mineral Development, Mr Kabagambe Kaliisa said the offer was part of a $ 41 mm (about Sh 70 bn) investment. He applauded the Japanese government for the support to rural electrification particularly in the largely agricultural and fishing areas of the country.
The Resident Representative Officer of the JICA Uganda office, Mr Susaki Takehiro said the project would be implemented within 26 months (slightly more than 2 years).
