Uganda has Opened Africa's 5th Largest Bridge which cost around $112 Million.
It is in Jinja, in the eastern part of the country.

It is 525 meters long cable-stayed bridge and was funded by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni claimed "it will last for 120 years."
The bridge was named "Source of the Nile bridge" and the project cost around US$112 million. The government of Japan financed 80% as a loan of US$100 million at an annual interest rate of 0.01%, repayable in 10 years but extendable to 40 years.

The newly built bridge is across the Victoria Nile and the expectation is to reduce the heavy traffic that passes through the Nalubaale Bridge which was built 64 years ago.
"Commissioned the new cable-stayed bridge in Jinja. The Shs41b bridge was constructed with support of the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and it will last 120 years," the President said in a tweet.
