“I want to advise Ugandans to go to petrol stations that have not hiked the prices. Two companies have not hiked prices, go buy from those ones, these others will also follow because it is now not necessary for any company to hike the price above shs 5000,” Nabbanja said.
She said that they took this decision at this week’s cabinet meeting. This followed measures to ease tankers traffic flow across the country’s borders.
Fuel crisis in the country was contributed to a pile-up of trucks at the Kenya-Uganda border points of Malaba and Busia.
The mandatory Covid-19 testing is apparently the cause of the pile up of all truck drivers. A directive that the Health Ministry issued early this month.
The Government however, through the Ministry of Health suspended the mandatory Covid-19 testing directive, allowing traffic at the borders to ease.
This means there is hope that in a few days prices are going to go back to normal. This is because trucks are now on the move.
However, government should pick a lesson from this otherwise, this crisis should never find the country not ready again.
