Speaker Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga has hailed the administration of Speke Resort Munyonyo for the hospitality and services extended to delegates who attended the just concluded Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference (CPC).
Kadaga said that in order to tap the foreign exchange, the organizers came with unique innovations like a large market at the venue which sold plenty of products and eased service delivery to delegates who would access the goods in the shortest time possible.
“The delegates didn’t have to travel from Munyonyo to town to buy anything in between the sittings. Everything was at Munyonyo,” she told this website on Thursday.
Kadaga heaped praises on the facility while making clarifications on false reports and also giving feedback on the just concluded conference.
“The hotels are in Uganda, the people working in these hotels are Ugandans and the food served is Ugandan. So the money spent goes to the economy,” she said.
Kadaga further appreciated Munyonyo because many Ugandans got an opportunity to earn foreign currency mostly those who operated the market.
She cited of a female trader who intercepted her as she left executive committee meeting at Munyonyo, fell on the ground because of the excitement of earning $ 1000 which was her first time ever.
Asked about her role as President of CPC, Kadaga responded: “my tenure as Chair CPA is to ensure that the rights of members of the Commonwealth are respected; the need to change the CPA Constitution is also key on my agenda.”
The 64th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference in Kampala took place on September 22, running for seven days and hosted at Commonwealth Resort Munyonyo.
Kadaga has further said that because of the extraordinary services offered by the hotel, some of the delegates from Canada and New Zealand opted to stay after the conference to have a feel of Uganda’s beauty.
Speke Resort Munyonyo is owned by a hotelier and property mogul Sudhir Ruparelia.
In August the hotel scooped an award of Luxury World Hotel and in 2017 it received the Guest Review Award.
