President Museveni has extended his condolences once again on the account of the death of President John Pombe Magufuli.
He Sunday congratulated H.E. Suluhu Samia upon her inauguration as President.
“I am satisfied that the project will make a modest contribution to the development of Tanzania. It cannot compensate for what they did to liberate Uganda from Idi Amin,” said Museveni at State House, Entebbe.
“We can use the same pipeline corridor to have a return gas pipeline to supply Tanzania and Mozambique gas to Uganda. Our brother countries have a lot of gas that we can use in Uganda.”
He said there is a huge chance of more oil reserves being discovered in the Albertine region.
There is also potential in Karamoja, Museveni noted.
“This pipeline can become a huge project to serve the East African region as a whole.”
