Government Will No Longer Pay for Unused Electricity When Hydroelectric Power Plants Start Up

The Auditor General, John Muwanga, revealed a startling expense of 88 billion Shillings for the fiscal year 2020–2021, which he attributed to the inefficiency of paying for considered energy. According to Dr. Ruth Nankabirwa, Minister of Energy and Mineral Development, since 2019, the government has been paying about US $24 million, or about 90.814 billion Shillings, a year for deemed power.
