A queer report indicates that city businessman Hamis Kiggundu aka Ham has allegedly evicted a tenant from his building for supporting People Power Movement.
The tenant who is a supporter of People Power was running Faiz Cafe on Level 5 of Ham Towers located opposite Makerere University main gate.
Faizal Kisiki had earlier visited Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine and took photos with him and wants to contest for the Mawogola South seat in 2021.
NBS TV’s NilePost quotes a notice to sue which Kisiki issued through his lawyers of Muwada and Company advocates.
Kisiki says he wasn’t in debt in anyway and therefore forcefully closing his enterprise should be treated as misdirected and evasive.
“Our [client]has through our offices already notified yours vide MWD/HAM-AL/009/12/19 that yours [Ham Kiggundu] returns money in their possession stolen from ours, plus surrendering in our presence all his remaining assets if not already as well tempered with by yours. We find your call that ours contact yours over the same as idle,” the notice reads.
Ham book put on syllabus
Meanwhile, the state-run New Vision reports that the National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC), has adopted Hamis Kiggundu’s book for secondary schools.
While handing over a certificate of recognition to Kigunddu, NCDC director, Grace Baguma, said after reviewing and evaluating his book titled “Success and Failures Based on Reason and Reality”, they found it relevant to be adopted in Uganda’s curriculum to inspire students into investing.
She said many rich businessmen in the country are selfish because they have never documented their success stories on how they have made it in life.
Baguma said Kiggundu’s book will help to inspire and change the mindset of students right from the grassroots on how to save and invest.
Before any book is adopted into the national curriculum, it has to go through evaluation processes by NCDC, which involve reviewing for language, relevance and message, among others.
Angela Kyagaba, a senior curriculum specialist, told New Vision they have adopted a number of books written by foreigners and, therefore, it is time they adopted books written by Ugandans. She urged Ugandans to start writing to inspire fellow citizens.
About the book
In the book, Kiguddu argues that many Ugandans are poor because they envy the rich and majority of them are saving but not investing because they fear risks.
He highlights the fear of investing as a stumbling block to wealth.
Kiggundu’s latest projects include the controversial demolition of Nakivubo War Memorial Stadium to pave way for redevelopment.
