Uganda’s Power Utility Shuts Generator Due to Fuel Shortage

The state-owned Uganda Electricity Generation Co. shut down one of its thermal generators because of a fuel shortage, Managing Director Eriasi Kiyimba said, deepening the country’s energy shortage.

“We have run out of fuel because we are indebted to suppliers,” Kiyimba said by phone today from the capital, Kampala. “One thermal generator of 50 megawatts was shut down yesterday.”
