The Chairman of Uganda Manufacturers Association, Mrs. Barbara K Mulwana today had an engagement with Bujagali Energy Ltd (BEL) on electricity tariffs. The meeting was held with Mrs. Josephine Ossiya  of Bujagali Energy Ltd and other members were Mr. Richard Mubiru (UMA Board Member), Dr. Martin Kyeyune and Mr. Brian Ahabwe of the UMA Economic Subcommittee. Later, the meeting was joined by Dr. Kariuki from Industrial Promotion Services Ltd (Kenya).

 High power tariffs in Uganda has been a topical subject and UMA has been on the fore front of lobbying Government for lower electricity tariffs. Unbundling the electricity supply industry was to realize effectiveness, availability as well as competitiveness and quality of power. But todays tariff is simply not competitive.

During the engagement with BEL, Mrs. Barbara K Mulwana resounded the need for the manufacturing industry to have affordable electricity and was looking at a tariff of 4 US Cents. Mrs. Josephine Ossiya assured the meeting that by July 2017, the tariff will go lower by 2 cents i.e. 9 US Cents as a result of the tax exemption and another drop of 2 US Cents will be experienced in October 17.
