Uganda: Mugenga Expands Into Telecom Dealership, Starts Radio Station


After building a string of successful companies starting with his flourishing clearing and forwarding business, city businessman Tom Mugenga has spread his tentacles to his home area, Kisoro, where he has dived headlong into the seemingly lucrative media and telecom dealership business.

Snoops tell us that Mugenga, whose new business slogan is 'East or West, Home is Best' recently started a radio station, Muhabura 88.9FM, which hits the airwaves last week. Sources close to the businessman say he has been telling all who care to listen that he is grateful to his friends. We hear champagne will flow at the grand launch party in Kisoro this weekend whose guest list reads like a who-is-who on the Kampala business and society hierarchy.

There is even talk of him chattering a private plane to fly his high profile guests to the party. Meanwhile, we are told Mugenga recently scooped a money-spinning franchise to supply Warid airtime in the entire southwest Uganda.
