Russia and South Korea have embarked on a joint venture to construct two nuclear power facilities in Uganda with the capacity to produce a total of 15,600 MW of electricity.

One of the nuclear stations will generate 7,000 MW while the other will produce 8,400 MW of electricity. 

The development comes at a time Uganda has banned the exportation of unprocessed iron ore and timber resources. 

The country has also set a 2031 target to produce electricity using nuclear energy.
