Nairobi -The Uganda government has committed its efforts to speed up the project to build an oil pipeline connecting to Kenya .
Daily Nation reports that in her budget speech last week, Uganda’s Finance minister Maria Kiwanuka said that construction of the Kenya-Uganda and Uganda-Rwanda oil pipelines using the Public Private Partnership arrangement will be speeded up next year.
Both Kenya and Uganda have been shopping for an investor to set up the 350km pipeline that will ferry refined petroleum products, thus easing heavy reliance on petroleum tankers.
