Step forward for Uganda: Alobo wants all Ugandans on solar power in 10 years

After delivering a 20MW solar project in Gomba, Dr David Alobo says he can power every Uganda in a self-financing scheme. It definitely won’t be an easy stroll, writes Alon Mwesigwa.

Dr Alobo’s plan is ambitious. As heavy rain pounded Kabulasoke in Gomba district last Wednesday, he made the most optimistic pitch.

“All Ugandans can have power within eight years,” he said as President Museveni, who was chief guest at the commissioning of a 20MW solar power project in Gomba, watched quietly. “Solar power can do to Uganda and Africa what mobile phone technology has done for the communications industry.”
