President Yoweri Museveni has renewed his call for establishment of an East African airline.
He made the call at the revival launch of Uganda airlines at Entebbe International airport.
The president said, “it is important to have a consolidated airline arguing that this will be one of he factors for the delayed revival of Uganda airlines.”
He expressed confidence that the revived Uganda airlines will not fail and will help Ugandans reduce expenses on travel abroad because annually Ugandans have been spending 400M $ on travel abroad.
However, legislator and also member of the Parliamentary committee on physical infrastructure Lutamaguzi Semakula says Government should come up with stringent measures to prevent corruption if the airline is to survive.
