Kampala—17, August 2021: Posta Uganda top official last week said there are plans to revive the now dysfunctional Post Buses across the country.
James Arinaitwe, the Managing Director announced this while briefing the media after the launch of Eurogiro Financial Supermarket in Kampala.
Eurogiro has its roots in European Postbank Cooperation, says Aggrey Amwonya, Manager Agency and Financial Services at Posta Uganda.
“When you need convenient ways to send money to your loved ones back home or abroad, Eurogiro Financial supermarket is here to help. With money transfer services, you can send money to over 200 countries and territories,” he adds.
For years, Ugandans have known Posta Uganda or Post Office for delivering letters or parcels and offering affordable and convenient transport through its many fleets of busses. Arinaitwe has quashed this understanding.

“..Posta Uganda is not all about delivering letters as widely known. We are at the centre of communications; we are not letter deliverant,” he said.
On the bus [transport] services, he had this to say: “Post Bus is a very popular product of Post Office. In fact, if there is anything they knew us for, it’s Post Bus; leaves on time, accident free, you sit in it and nobody is going to rubble your necktie.”
“It’s still a product and we are looking at investing in it,” he reveals, adding that “It’s not something we have forgotten about; as of now, the buses are not running but this a product that we want to launch again.”
Arinaitwe said at the same event that they cherish Post Buses “a lot”.
