Power distributor Umeme Uganda Limited has declared a total national outage just minutes to President Museveni’s Covid19 nation address.
“We are currently experiencing a NATIONAL OUTAGE and are working with @uetcl and all stakeholders to have power restored at the earliest,” Umeme tweeted Tuesday afternoon.
It added: “All inconveniences caused are regreted.”
Uganda Electricity Transmission Company Limited said there is a floating island that is affecting generation at Nalubale and Bujagali power dams.
“As a result, we have a total national blackout. We are working with generation to sort the issues,” UETCL said.
