NO TROOP DEPLOYMENT TO SOUTH SUDAN: Chief of Defence Forces-Gen.Katumba Wamala.

The Minister of Works and Transport, Gen Katumba Wamala has dismissed social media reports that government has started collecting toll fees from motorists using Kampala-Entebbe Expressway.
Gen Katumba tweeted:  “My attention has been drawn to fake news circulating on social media asserting that collection of toll fees has commenced on the Kampala-Entebbe Expressway. Please note that such information is false and should be treated with the contempt it deserves,”
The shs1.8 trillion expressway was constructed by China Communication Construction Company and the motorists were supposed to pay for using it but the Uganda National Roads Authority said it was procuring a contractor to manage the collection of the fees.
In 2019, parliament passed The Roads Bill, 2018 which provides for the collection of road tolls to pay off the loan for the road.
The expressway is currently Uganda’s only toll road with a total of three main toll plazas that consists of a total of 16 toll gates.
