Source of the Nile Bridge went green

The road crossing at Jinja is of national and regional significance because it is part of the “Northern Corridor”, a highway across east and central Africa linking the Indian Ocean at Mombasa, Kenya, to the Atlantic Ocean at Matadi, Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The Embassy of Ireland was delighted to work with Uganda Tourism Board and the Uganda National Roads Authority to light the ‘Source of the Nile’ Bridge green to celebrate Ireland’s national day, St Patrick’s Day, which takes place annually on 17th March.

This is the fifth year that Uganda has taken part in the Global Greening initiative, and the first year to light the new bridge over the River Nile. The River Nile is a major source of tourism, and Ireland is privileged to bring attention to this aspect of Uganda’s geography and culture.

Ambassador William Carlos shared “We are very excited to be partnering with UTB once again on the Global Greening and to have identified such an iconic landmark as the Source of the Nile Bridge. The Bridge is a symbol of two nations and two peoples forging a connection and a friendship. The River Nile is a great source of tourism in Uganda, and we are delighted to shine a green light on it.”

Lilly Ajarova, UTB Chief Executive Officer welcomed the partnership with the Embassy of Ireland, noting “Uganda’s participation in this Irish greening initiative is part of our long working relationship with the Embassy of Ireland. The greening initiative has supported us to showcase our unique tourism attractions to the whole world. We are delighted that the new Source of the Nile Bridge will be the greened attraction this year.” She added, “We wish the Irish a great St. Patrick’s Day.”
