Sources from the meeting said Umeme officials had agreed to cut the prices but would want to first meet all shareholders.

Museveni, speaking visibly angry, said sources, insisted he would only renew Umeme’s contract once power tariffs have reduced.

The president recently wrote to energy minister Irene Muloni instructing her not to renew Umeme’s contract.
