Is Uganda's tariff the highest in the East African Region?

No. Although some countries in East Africa have lower tariffs than the tariffs in Uganda in some customer categories, especially because of direct government subsidies in those countries, the electricity tariff in Uganda is not the highest. Specifically, of the five East African countries, the tariff for street lighting is lowest in Uganda while Uganda’s tariff for extra-large industrial customers is the second-lowest after Tanzania. For the avoidance of doubt, there is no customer category for which the Ugandan tariff is highest in East Africa.
