Deepening Fuel Crisis In Uganda Forces Government officials To Visit Their Neighbours

A contingent of officials drawn from Ugandan government have this afternoon crossed into Kenya to access the real extent of Jam caused by trucks transporting fuel to Uganda.

There is a looming shortage of fuel in various parts of Uganda. The shortage was caused by truck drivers downing their tools after being subjected to Mandatory Covid 19 screening by Ugandan side despite having been screened in Kenya.

Ugandan legislators have been looking into various ways of averting the crisis. One of the agreed way was to suspend all Covid 19 screening to both truck drivers and passengers. This has not shown much reprieve to the crisis. Fuel prices continues to shoot up. Some fuel stations are even charging double price of the initial price of fuel per litre.

Ugandan officials have now been forced to cross into Kenyan territory through Busia border to get a first hand impression of the real situation before making appropriate recommendations to ease the burden on Ugandans.
