26/10/2016 - On Tuesday, October 25, 2016, the African Development Bank approved a US $25-million loan for a multinational project to establish a safety-of-life communications systems for Lake Victoria. The largest lake in Africa accommodates a fleet of 70,000 vessels, mostly individual fishermen, but lacks any alert or rescue systems. Consequently as many as 5,000 people die in the lake each year. The loan will finance the extension of GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) networks on the lake and the creation of 22 rescues centres in Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya, contributing to save lives and stimulate business for the benefit of the economy of the entire Lake Victoria basin.
