President Yoweri Museveni will this Wednesday address the nation, particularly on the current affairs in the country.

His address, scheduled to kick off at 8:00pm, will be televised on television and radio stations.

This is according to a tweet shared by Lindah Wamboka, the senior press secretary to Museveni.

Prices of most essential commodities and foodstuffs have gone up sharply. This is mainly attributed to the rise in fuel prices since January this year.

Currently, a litre of petrol goes for between sh6,500 and sh6,900, while a litre of diesel is between sh6,300 and sh6,690.

These prices vary from one filling station to another.

Essential commodities such as a bar of soap currently cost between sh6000 and sh10,000 while a kilo of sugar averagely goes for sh4000. 

The average cost of a three-litre container of any brand of cooking oil averagely costs sh38,000. This is up from sh24,000 that it used to cost at the beginning of this year.
