The Entebbe express highway costed Uganda tax payers to a tune of USD476Million.

Out of this, USD350 Million is a loan from Exim Bank of China at a 2% annual interest.

This makes it the most expensive road in the whole world, according to FDC deputy spokesperson John Kikonyogo.

“We also understand that the loan has to be paid back through the road tolling system, but the figure they have charged for vehicles to use the road is too high for our ordinary citizens,” he told press at Najjanankumbi on Monday.

He said the Government is busy charging Ugandans exorbitantly yet they are paying the former Vice President and Prime Minister double salaries, one as a former Prime Minister/Vice President and another as Presidential Advisor.

“If the President had wanted them to continue advising, then he shouldn’t have reshuffled them.”

“We therefore advise that the figure be reduced if Government is to recover the money and the citizens continue using the road.”
