How to transport charcoal in Uganda


Postcard
Uganda is a landlocked country bordered by South Sudan, Kenya, DR Congo, Tanzania and Rwanda. The country, also known as the pearl of Africa, has great diversity in wildlife, vegetation, landscapes and cultures. Uganda I home to about 31 million people.

On the postcard we see a charcoal truck. They tend to be a burden for Uganda traffic.   

Police in Luweero have impounded 16 heavy trucks for overloading.
Paul Okongo, the officer in charge of traffic in Luweero district oversaw the trucks each loaded with more than 100 bags of charcoal towed to Luwero central police station. The traffic chief said that the charcoal trucks have increasingly become a menace on the highways.
He described it as unacceptable for trucks to load charcoal way beyond the edges of their containers. He said trucks carrying charcoal with some of the sacks bulging out of the trucks obstruct traffic and are likely to cause harm to other road users.
