Buganda Kingdom’s multibillion Mirembe Villas a housing estate in Kigo has been handed over to Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga who represented the King of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi after the completion of 40 modern houses.
Kigo overlooks Lake Victoria a stone’s throw from Lake Victoria Serena. These modern houses are now ready for people to occupy.
“Uganda has a huge deficit of housing and this project goes a long way in addressing that challenge,” Mayiga said. “However, Ssaabasajja Kabaka when he was launching this project urged us to start another project with affordable houses. That project will be in Ssentema Wakiso District and Mayembe ga Mbogo in Mpigi,” he revealed. “I call upon those who want to partner with us in Ssentema and Mpigi to come forward. We want to unveil it soon,” Mayiga added.
The investment partner for Mirembe Villas, the Chinese real estate giant, Gouji Group, was quick to express interest. “We want to partner with you even in Ssentema,” the Gouji Group representative said.
Katikkiro Mayiga was accompanied by Princess Joan Nassolo and Princess Victoria Nkinzi, both daughters of Kabaka Mutebi.
Roland Ssebuwufu the CEO Buganda Investments and Commercial Undertakings Ltd (BICUL) thanked Gouji Group and Buganda Land Board for the job well done as well as the Katikkiro for the guidance.
Owek Robert Waggwa Nsibirwa, the Kingdom Treasurer and Minister of Finance, Investments and Planning said real estate leads to the development of other sectors.
This project is another way through which the Kingdom of Buganda contributes to the development of Uganda.
