The Minister of Works and Transport General Edward Katumba Wamala has dismissed as false reports claiming government has already started collecting toll fees on the new Kampala-Entebbe expressway.
“My attention has been drawn to fake news circulating on social media asserting that collection of toll fees has commenced on the Kampala-Entebbe Expressway,” Katumba said on Wednesday.
He added: “Please note that such information is FALSE and should be treated with the contempt it deserves.”
Uganda National Roads Authority [UNRA] also asked the public to disregard rumours circulating online about collection of Toll fees to access the Kampala-Entebbe Expressway.
“An official communication will be made to this effect once the ongoing tolling preparations are concluded,” the roads authority noted.
