Entebbe: Mogul Dr.Sudhir Ruparelia through his Ruparelia Group recently kicked off the construction of a mega-resort and convention centre whose construction is expected to consume 100m dollars.
According to our snoop within the boundaries of this project, Speke Resort and Convention Centre will sit on over 15 acres at Abayita Ababiri trading centre near the Shores of Lake Victoria in Entebbe.
Economically, this beach will be so impactful to Uganda as a country since it will be constructed a few steps away from Entebbe International Airport, making it the perfect Gateway to Uganda, which according to economic pundits, will attract millions of tourists year in year out.
