In response to Preasident Museveni’s appeal to different organisations to join government and feed the needy during this Covid-19 lockdown, this youngest tycoon in Uganda has handed to Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Ruhakana Rugunda UGX 100M to buy food, soap and other basic necessities to bail out people who don’t have what to eat.
Handing over UGX 100M to Dr. Rugunda in the presence of NRM ruling Party Secretary General Rt. Hon. Justine Kasule Lumumba and other political leaders at a function held at Prime ministe’s office, 35 years old powerful businessman Hamis Kiggundu said, “I have come to answer the appeal of H.E the President of buying food for our brothers and sisters, for the elderly who don’t have what to eat yet they are supposed to stay in their homes as we all fight Covid 19 pandemic. Sir, receive UGX 100M in cash to buy them food and other basic necessities.”
A happy looking Prime minister Rugunda thanked Tycoon Hamis Kiggundu for being an exemplary local investor and called upon others to be like this youngman.

He has joined the government in feeding Ugandans. He is a very good man and his type is rare to find. Let others act like him if we are to defeat Corona virus.”
Hamis, through Ham Foundation has been very instrumental in fighting Covid-19.
He recently posted on his facebook page that: End Coronavirus, join the ‘collective national effort’ and stay at home to stay safe. When cleaning use your usual household products, like detergents & bleach, as these will be effective at getting rid of the virus on surfaces. Clean frequently touched surfaces such as handles, handrails, remote controls & table tops. May Allah bless us, our Motherland Uganda, Humanity and the World at large.
