MV Kalangala ship that has been grounded for four months has been taken to Mwanza for the annual inspection and renewal of its licence.

Ministry of Works and Transport public relations officer, Mr Susan Kataike, said they are done with the repairs of the engines and had taken the vessel for the mandatory intermediate docking survey in Mwanza, Tanzania.

“I can’t say the vessel has been inspected by now or not because there are many vessels that go for the same inspection but what I am sure of is that, the vessel will resume operations before the end of January,” Ms Kataike said in an interview. “We urge our people to be patient because the inspection is for their own safety.”
