A new weather radar system has been fixed at Entebbe international airport in readiness of the commonwealth Heads of Government meeting.
Entebbe airport's weather radar system broke down last year, prompting the meteorological department to depend on satellite surveillance for its weather predictions.
Last year, Stephen Magezi, the Commissioner for Meteorology, told parliament that the weather radar collapsed because it had become obsolete.
Speaking to Journalists in Kampala this morning, the vice president of Uganda, Professor Gilbert Bukenya, said new Radar has been fixed today to provide instant weather information to the airlines that will use Uganda's airspace during and after CHOGM.
Bukenya said that the weather radar would increase the safety of aircrafts operation in Uganda's airspace.
53 heads of state and the queen of England are expected in Uganda for the commonwealth heads of government meeting (CHOGM).
