One of the biggest projects that would be affected by the freezing of funds from World Bank is the much appreciated USMID project that has transformed cities and municipality plus refugee hosting districts across the country .

Ggoobi told attentive MPs Uganda was willing to implementing measures that promote “inclusivity” to secure funding from the World Bank for critical national development projects. World Bank has some of the cheap money in loans which are paid over a long period of time .
