The Uganda government shared plans to restart the Uganda Airlines but that now seems to be a task because the name was patented by a business person, Sam Kuteesa.
The Uganda Registration Bureau was unable to explain how the government was not able to secure the name and a different person who is not in the government was able to register the name.
The registration happened after the government liquidated the Uganda Airlines in May 2001.
Meanwhile in Uganda,the name of the national airline was patented by someone else. The Government has bought aeroplanes only to find out that the name of the national carrier was stolen.
