Sudan’s Tarco airlines to start direct flights to Entebbe

Pending clearance by Civil Aviation Authority and Ministry of Works, a Sudanese private airline, Tarco is set to start direct flights between Khartoum and Entebbe. 

Tarco has been previously flying to Chad, Nigeria, South Sudan, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates since 2009. Now, the Sudanese government has designated Tarco airline to fly to Entebbe, easing flights between Uganda and Sudan.  

Sudan President Omar Hassan Ahmed Al-Bashir is in Uganda for a two-day visit at the invitation of President Yoweri Museveni. Museveni observed that the designation of the flight route would greatly improve connectivity between the two countries and promote trade, tourism and investment. 

Sudan is one of Uganda's major coffee export markets importing 20 per cent of Ugandan coffee. The country is also the single biggest export market for the product from which about $100 million is earned, according to data released by the ministry of foreign affairs. 

The presidents also observed that the lifting of trade and economic sanctions that had been unilaterally imposed on Sudan by the United States for nearly 20 years, is an opportunity for boosting trade volumes between the countries and called upon the business communities and private sectors to take advantage of this positive development. 

According to the joint communique issued after a meeting between the two presidents last night, the two presidents also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on cooperation in higher education between the two countries. 

They directed their respective ministers to fast-track implementation of all decisions agreed upon and conclude all pending MoU for cooperation in the areas of agriculture, sports and youth as well as security before the next Joint Ministerial Commission (JMC) to be hosted by Uganda by March 2018.  

The presidents also reviewed the implementation of the decisions made during President Museveni's official visit to Sudan in September 2015 as well as the 5th Joint Ministerial Commission. They noted the progress being made in cooperation between the two countries particularly in the sectors of trade and investment, transport, security and education.

In other words, what a disgrace to Ugandans and disrespect for International Law (UN and ICC), when two bloody comrades in war crime and crimes against humanity: Al-Bashir and Master of Violence Mr. M7 want our respect and applause.

Eish!

I don't see anything good coming out of our association with President Bashir.

I think it is a mistake and I don't think it is being done for the good of Uganda.

All these invitations starting with Mr. Pombe and now El-Bashir are just to cloud the age limits controversial removal and portray M7 as very hard working with a lot still to accomplish, the shock is when you visits these presidents cities, you will find a stark difference with Kampala, their is affluent , well organized and striving to get better by year unlike our congested unplanned so called city, sorry M7, you missed the chance to prove your talks, the swine did much better than you.

Lakwena, thanks!

Can you believe these criminals defy the entire world, while U.Kenyatta who brought some sense to Kenya politics is at pain trying so hard to let the hope he set in motion continue!

Even Tanzania outgoing president prefers consolidating demon museveni, instead of helping U.Kenyatta maintain peace/situation in Kenay!

Not 1 African so called leaders is helping U.Kenyatta, who really really needs the entire continent to help Kenyans stick to the good path Kenyatta gave them chance to, even going to ICC when he was innocent!

Of course Kenya settles down to real world (peace/development) is not exciting!

But museveni, a real demon holding Ugandans by the balls is feared/venerated & not even talked about, but worshiped in silence!

Who is a friend of Ugandans today?

So, how will Ugandans be Free without UNITY?

nsubugas, agreed, but,

Don't forget museveni is there not for Ugandans & this is why he wants to be lifetime president constitutionally & shut up/out Ugandans for good, while the entired zone will belong to him & his people!

Is our Unity against museveni dangerous, more so it wiill give chance to Reformation of the Republic or Independent Tribal States?

Are Ugandans waiting for museveni to manouver his way & own the entire zone so as to wake up, too late?

Stewart, thanks!

Ugandans are the only naive in today world! How can 31 years of misery-oppression-dilapidation of buildings-misuse of tax money-selling off of National Assets...go without a people rising up to throw out the demon dictator thief?

How can Uganans even allow them abused by debating the demon's age as if the existence of the country depends on it?

Yet, without Unity of those who brought in museveni, I ask:

Why is Acholi part of this hell & not an Independent Tribal State?

Now every tribe has joined to hand over the entire zone to museveni, why?
