RVR has made good progress in paying concession fees due to Uganda

Rift Valley Railways (RVR) workers have gone on a sit down strike protesting what they call unfair policies by management.

The group has not been working for a week now protesting against a decision by one their manager, Joram Nyanzi to dismiss two of their colleagues accused of siphoning fuel from the fuel tanks.

For a week now, the Passenger train has not been working as a result of the strike.

The train, sources added, it carries 800 passengers for the two trips daily.

Last month, police arrested four RVR workers over fuel theft. The suspects included Moses Mukungum, a driver, Anaklet Magezi, a train guard and Evert Tumuhimbise also a train driver.

Police said the suspects were arrested at Nyanga Village, in Buikwe District where they had parked and siphoning fuel from the tanks.
