President pulls off the road to make a phone call in full glare of villagers

12 July 2016, 16:01 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - It is rare to see a country's leader making a phone call at the side of a highway, but residents of Kyeirumba village in Isingiro district Monday evening witnessed President Museveni do so.

President Yoweri Museveni made a surprise stop at the highway at Kyeirumba village in Isingiro district to make a phone call shortly after attending the World Population Day commemoration in Isingiro district.

Curious residents started gathering when they saw the President talking while acknowledging cheers with his trademark thumbs-up sign. He also directed his security not to block traffic while he made his call.

The President who made the phone call for about 30 minutes later talked to the residents who hailed him for the tarmacking of the 74-Kilometer road that links Uganda to Tanzania through Kikagati in Isingiro district. The road was constructed at a cost of UGX 178 billion.

They also urged him to engage solar distributors to reduce the cost of batteries which are now at UGX 400,000 and to power distributors to make electricity cheaper.

The President pledged to engage stakeholders in reducing the cost of power in the rural areas.
