UNRA tripples road fine collections (Daily Monitor (Uganda))


JINJA. The Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) has in a period of 13 days collected Shs115m in express penalties from motorists found driving overloaded trucks on various roads in the country, the executive director, Ms Allen Kagina, has revealed.
The collection made in the 13 days is more than three times the Shs28 million that UNRA collected in the financial year 2014/2015.
Speaking in Jinja last Thursday during a two-day retreat for UNRA officials and members on the Parliamentary Committee on Infrastructure, Ms Kagina said the collection of such amounts shows the magnitude of corruption that has been taking place at the weigh bridges.
