UGANDA AIR REVIVAL: Government Pays Commitment fee for Airlines Supply
Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda says Uganda has already paid a commitment fee for the supply of Airplanes, as part of the wider campaign to revive the national airline career.
Uganda Airlines was liquidated in 2001 over heavy debts at a tune of more than $6 million and according to the plans in place; Uganda will initially need at least 1.4 trillion shillings to revive the airline on a phase approach.
As part of the efforts, the Entebbe International Airport is under renovation and expansion. According to Dr Rugunda, the purchase of the airplanes and works on Entebbe airport are progressing well.
This was addressing Journalists at the media centre as he launched the NRM Manifesto implementation week.
Meanwhile Dr Rugunda warns all Government officials to refrain from corruption saying it’s costly to the Uganda taxpayers and those caught will be severely punished.
He notes that a new directive by cabinet entails better performance and that those found wanting and corrupt will not only be punished but also sacked
