Station Manager, Luka Mukwana at a handover ceremony that took place at the school premises.
“At SGS Uganda, we give our Station Managers control over the CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility –

local communities we operate in.” said Saidi Alikwani, the SGS Human Resource Manager.
SGS Mbale Vehicle Inspection station that is in Bugema, on Tororo – Mbale road, about 3 kilometers
from Mbale town, was opened in Mbale on 11th September 2017 and inspects all types of vehicles.
In March 2015, Uganda’s Ministry of Works and Transport awarded SGS an exclusive contract to carry
out vehicle inspections countrywide on its behalf. The vehicle inspection exercise is carried out under
“Safe Drive Uganda” – a road safety measure intended to ensure vehicle roadworthiness and reduce
carnage on Ugandan roads.
This mandatory exercise is aimed at improving road safety by compelling motor vehicle owners and
drivers to use safe and well-maintained vehicles. SGS conducts almost 44 million vehicle inspections
worldwide for both emissions and roadworthiness.
