Electricity distribution company UMEME has announced an emergency load shedding across the country starting today.
This follows notification from its supplier the Uganda Electricity Transmission Company Limited of a nationwide outage to allow release tests at generation plants of Nalubale, Kiira, Bujagali and Isimba.
Umeme spokesperson, Stephen Ilungole says this will be effected from today to Monday from 9 am – 5 pm daily.
He appeals to members of the public to be patient as the engineers work around the clock to minimize impact of this load shedding.
