A new online marketplace, https://www.suubula.com/, announces the launch of its website in Kampala, Uganda to facilitate trade of discounted products and services.

Goods are delivered by Speedaf, an internationally reputed company. In Kampala city, orders are delivered in less than an hour after receipt of orders at a cost of only Shs4,000. Suubula.com offers unlimited space to traders, farmers, entreprenuers, ICT developers, manufacturers and real estate dealers to sell  a wide range of products in different categories including Agricultural Produce, Livestock, Poultry, Farm Inputs, Fashion and Beauty, Food and Beverages, Apartments, Gadgets, Gifts, Books and Art among others.

The website launch comes against the backdrop of the spread of Coronavirus which has led to closure of education and social facilities, grounding tens of thousands of people at their places of abode. 

Suubula.com allows entrepreneurs and commercial businesses connect with potential buyers who are at home and workplaces. “All one needs is to identify a product on the website, put in the cart and pay for it. We’ll then call them to make arrangements for swift delivery,” said Suubula Chief Executive Officer, Camble Hope. 

“Those who are stuck with goods in the gardens and stores should also advertise them on Suubula.com so that the site delivers these products to potential buyers,” he added.

 In the long run, Suubula.com will provide space for job seekers and employers to create employment opportunities for millions of people who are unable to find appropriate places of work.

Home Jobs The website will as well create “Home Jobs” especially those who are unable to find work or rent space at a commercial building but can use their skills to bake birthday cakes; produce table mats; prepare rollex, coffee or yoghurt etc from their homes.

“You’ll be able to list your product/skills under “Home Jobs” on Suubula.com at a free cost,’” said Camble Hope. “You no longer need ‘display space’ at a city mall for a gift shop if you can have your products viewed by millions of people on Suubula.com. We are changing the way we do business by facilitating marketing of products and services and reaching out to millions of customers online. Suubula.com exists to support businesses sell products and skills in the local market and elsewhere in the world.” 

Almost 4.54 billion people were active internet users as of January 2020. Camble said it’s high time “we tapped the potential of this market.” 

Bulk trade Suubula.com will also facilitate trade in bulk commodities, allowing wholesalers obtain heavily discounted goods for local, regional and international markets. Incorporated at Uganda Registration Bureau Services (URSB) in Kampala, Suubula.com will also allow existing businesses to list their shops, salons, bakeries, bars, restaurants, recreational facilities, gyms, real estate, etc on the website at an affordable fee. 
 

The site, built by Ugandan ICT experts has a user-friendly payment platform and interface, allowing users easy navigation and location of their favourites products. Suubula.com is using Flutterwave, an internationally recognised and secure payment system for transactions; and the company commits to total security and privacy of customer data. 


Buyers and sellers can use Mobile money services to transact on the website.  In the next 18 months, Suubula.com will embark on an aggressive marketing campaign targeting an audience of 5 million people to enable listed businesses, skills and products are linked to domestic and foreign markets. “While your chia seeds and fruits go bad in the granary or garden, a businessman in Dubai is struggling to obtain a reliable supplier of the same,” said Camble, emphasising, “Suubula will address this bottleneck by linking producers and potential buyers online.” 

While foreign products such as accessories and gadgets will be sold on Suubula.com, the site will give priority to Ugandan products. “Gone are the days when human survival hinged on availability of jobs or cash to rent space to run a business. Gone are the days when entrepreneurs, ICT developers, mechanics, plumbers, masons and builders etc would spend weeks without a trace for opportunities.

Suubula is here to transform lives by enabling your economic transformation through trade,” said Camble. You can follow Suubula.com on social media platforms, Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Suubulacom-109562647324950/ and Twitter, https://twitter.com/SubuulaOfficial

Great Lakes Energy Company has donated five brand new Nissan Double Cabin Pick-ups to the Covid-19 national taskforce.

By Our Reporter

Great Lakes Energy Company (GLE) has handed over five brand new Nissan Double Cabin Pick-ups worth 134,300 US Dollars (approximately UG Shillings 507.6m) to Hon. Mary Okurut, the Minister In Charge of General Duties and the head of the Government Covid-19 taskforce.

The five cars will help transport medical workers and distribute food across Uganda as the country continues to curb the COVID-19 pandemic.

GLE has always contributed to the communities that they operate in across Africa by supporting sustainable development projects, mainly in Health, Education and Conservation.

Commenting on the donation, GLE Director Michael Kearns said: “Given the gravity of the ongoing pandemic, we felt it prudent to respond to the President of Uganda’s appeal for additional logistical support to boost the Ministry of Health’s fleet. We are honored to contribute to the alleviation of the COVID-19 pandemic in Uganda by donating these 5-brand new pick-up trucks that will be used to transport food and medical workers to the areas they are needed the most”, he noted.

Speaking on behalf of the COVID-19 taskforce, Hon. Mary Okurut thanked GLE for the donation that will go a long way in providing additional support to the taskforce as it implements the different interventions to curb the spread of the virus.

Guided by two main pillars of strengthening healthcare infrastructure and providing assistance to the most vulnerable communities, GLE allocates funds, separate to the operational business expenditure, to support chosen philanthropic and Corporate Social investment endeavors. Last year, the company worked with local partners to fund a health outreach activity in Rushere district as well as a youth sports tournament to teach Uganda youth about teamwork and leadership.

This donation is part of Janus Continental Group’s Africa-wide COVID-19 response and shows the huge potential of public and private sector partnership, bolstering the efforts of civil society and healthcare institutions. Standing together with governments and societies, JCG is guided by the WHO call for whole-of-government and whole-of-society approach in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In January 2019, GLE completed the $25 million Uganda-based Kabulasoke solar power plant developed in conjunction with the Uganda Electricity Transmission Company Ltd. The 24MW solar power plant, which is already connected to the national grid, serves over five million people in rural Uganda.

Staff at NBS TV are on cloud 9 after President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni shared a screengrab of the station.

In a tweet on Thursday, Museveni shared a photo of a television screen showing NBS TV, which was streaming the budget speech live from Parliament.

The photo’s caption read: “This afternoon at State House Entebbe, through a technology platform, I participated in the presentation of the national budget to Parliament.”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the budget ceremony was carried out in a scientific manner, with President Museveni addressing Parliament and the world from State House.

For the Kin Kariisa-owned station that’s made a visible-for-all effort to be on top of the news at all times, advanced technology has been at the forefront, enabling them to be an authority on major happenings, especially with their coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic. They have also been able to position themselves as the kings of live coverage.

Recently, Ministry of Health officials were seen watching NBS TV’s sister station, Salam TV. These surely are major wins for the Kamwokya based Media House.
