Russia signs deal to develop nuclear energy in Uganda

Russia has signed an agreement with Uganda to develop the East African country’s nuclear energy capacity.

Under the deal which was signed in Vienna, Russia will develop Nuclear technology in Uganda to supply its growing energy needs, with a focus on industrial, medical and other peaceful uses.

Last year China’s National Nuclear Corporation signed a deal with Uganda – which has uranium deposits – to help it produce atomic energy for peaceful purposes.

South Africa abandoned a controversial deal – signed under Jacob Zuma’s presidency – to spend more than $76bn (£61bn) on a Nuclear Energy project with Russia’s Russian state-owned company Rosatom.
