LOCATION

The town is located approximately 70 kilometres (43 mi), by road, northwest of Bukoba, the regional capital

WHY

418 vehicles a day pass through the Mutukula border point, with trucks taking over a day on average to process through customs from Tanzania to Uganda. This delay imposes serious costs on traders. They must wait longer for their import or export, pay for the truck to wait at the border, risk perishable goods losing their value and manage unpredictable transport times.
