His Excellency expresses happiness with migration efforts to renewable energy & a reduction of environmental pollution

President Yoweri Museveni has today received a group of innovators and manufacturers that will spearhead the transition of the country from the use of fossil fuels to E-Mobility.

 

The group that was led by the Minister of Science and Technology Dr Musenero included private sector players, University researchers on E-Mobility, financiers as well as service delivery players

President Museveni highly commended the group for their efforts in fabricating and manufacturing vehicles and pikipikis here in the country. He noted that this will not only promote the use of clean energy and stop pollution but will also in the long run provide cheaper vehicles.

“We don’t want to hear of assembling, assembling is out of date. So on one hand we will use clean energy and stop pollution and on the other hand, we are now finding out that electric vehicles are cheaper in the long run,” he noted.

 

President Museveni noted that the move will shift the country from the use of fuel energy to electric clean energy that will involve big buses with a sitting capacity of 90 passengers and minibuses as well as electric pikipikis.

He said this will also decongest the city that is flooded with small vehicles as well as bodabodas as commuters will abandon their cars in favour of the buses whose fares will be pocket friendly.

President Museveni however pointed out that although Uganda will be processing its oil in a few years to come this will not stop the effort of having clean energy. He added that the oil will be used for textiles, polyesters, plastics, aviation fuel and fertilizers among others.

He therefore strongly encouraged members of the group to move into the sectors of fabricating and manufacturing adding that the only challenge now is the manufacture of electric batteries that must be manufactured in the country as all the required materials are available. He pledged government support in this endeavour.

“Batteries now is a very crucial step. We shall give you all the support,” he assured members of the group. “In the medium term we shall have to make the batteries here, so I am very glad to hear that there is somebody among you who is already involved in electric batteries,” the President noted.

President Museveni disclosed that the government will soon develop a vertically integrated Industry in steel manufacturing as the country has a high grade of iron ore,70% pure, the best in the world next to that of Peru which is only 58 %.

South Sudan’s beloved model Amelia Aboud Michael Sky, winner of several international awards died in Juba on Monday, family have confirmed.

Her elder sister Ebony Aboud said the catwalk supermodel commonly known as Amelia Sky passed away due to Anemia and throat infection, immediately after his arrival from Yambio.

“She took a boda-boda to bring her to Juba because there was no bus coming to Juba due to security issues. She took three days to reached Juba, and in a process, she got sick because of heavy rains and dust,” said Ebony.

“She died in Juba while being taken to the hospital,” she added.

The beauty queen reportedly traveled to Yambio four months ago after her father died.

According to Ebony, her sister went home to pay respect and build the tomb of their father who had died in her absence.

A kindergarten teacher, who studied business and accounting at the American School of South Sudan in Juba, Amelia has also represented South Sudan at international modelling competitions, where she won awards.

She contested for South Sudan at World Miss University 2017 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and also competed at Top Model of the World in El Gouna Egypt in July 2017, where she finished among the Top 10.

Again in March last year, she represented her country at the Top Model of the World 2020 in Hurghada, Egypt but she was unplaced.

On August last year, she represented South Sudan at Miss Supranational 2021 in Nowy Sącz, Małopolska, Poland and was named the Top Model of Africa.

On April 2, 2022, she represented South Sudan at Miss Environment International 2022 in Mumbai, India. She was second runner-up to Kayra Wouters of Belgium and was crowned Miss Biodiversity 2022.

Her sister, Ebony said Amelia hastily left Yambio for Juba because she was supposed to travel to Germany for her modelling career.

“She has always been a pillar of our household, and the family depended on her for everything,” said her emotional sister.

“She was very strong, kind and everyone love her specially when she travels abroad to represent South Sudan.”

A fugitive Kenyan policewoman who was accused of shooting dead two men has been found dead at her parents’ home.

A regional administrator, George Natembeya, said Caroline Kangogo had gone to her parent’s home in Elgeyo Marakwet county in the Rift Valley region and shot herself.

This ends weeks of search by a multi-agency team that described her as an “armed and dangerous sharp shooter”.

She was wanted for the murder of two men two days apart in Nakuru and Kiambu areas.

One of the deceased men was her colleague while the other was reportedly involved in a love triangle with her.

The body of the fugitive police officer was found at her parents’ home on Friday morning in Elgeyo Marakwet, west of the country.

Her parents had one week ago appealed to her through media outlets to surrender to the police.

Kangogo had worked with the crime office at Nakuru police station then was later assigned to the law courts.

She was described as a well-trained and experienced officer.
