Parliament has adopted the recommendation of the adhoc committee on energy to terminate the contract of power generating company Eskom. The Legislators said on Thursday that Eskom has deteriorated the generation capacity of the two power dams - Kiira and Nalubale, and contributed to the inflated tariff.
Members of parliament have rejected the proposals of the executive and maintained that the contract of power distributor umeme should be cancelled as the committee that was set up to investigate the electricity sector recommended.
Jacob Oboth Oboth, the West Budama south MP who chaired the committee told the house that the committee reached the recommendation after getting enough evidence from the witnesses including the regulator and copies of letters from the two ministers.
Despite protests from MPs led by the Leader of Opposition Nandala Mafabi to resolve the issues in the sector before Ugandans are cheated further, Kadaga said that minister Irene Muloni needed time to prepare a response to the issues raised in the report.
On Wednesday afternoon, the committee received information from Paul Kato, the officer in charge of investigations at parliament who was instructed to get recordings from the CCTV camera at Protea hotel from November 26th to 6th December.
