Residence permits and shipments to Kampala?

Can anyone shed some light on this for me.

I am shipping a container of household goods to Kampala. I have been told that to get the shipment in to the country and into my possession I shall require a residence permit. However, I have also been told that a residence permit (non-diplomatic) can take up to 3 months to process.

So will I have to wait three months for my shipment? Without my shipment I would have to live in temporary accommodation for months and that does not sound too appealing....

Have I been correctly informed? And has anyone got any experience to deal with this?
