By Staff Writer

Independence Day was the perfect day to relax and appreciate the beauty that Uganda is and also marvel at the investments of the rich and famous along the shores of Lake Victoria. What better way to do this than a boat cruise round the scenic beauty that is our country Uganda as you take in the cool breeze.

As some Ugandans gathered in Kyotera to mark Uganda’s 57th Independence Day, Uganda Waragi Pineapple treated its customers to an Independence Day boat cruise on Lake Victoria.  Borrowing from its descriptor of a relaxed, chill and catch up over a bottle of UG Pineapple.

Uganda Waragi Pineapple is a new variant of your favorite spirit, Uganda Waragi. It was introduced in July and now joins the family of Uganda Waragi original and Uganda Waragi Coconut. It is a delicious combination of Uganda Waragi infused with freshly ripened Uganda pineapples.

The EarthWise boat, docked at Port Bell pier, was dapped in sunflower, pineapples and sunny colours ready for the cruise by midday. A mixologist stood at the foot of the boat to welcome the cruisers with a host of free-flowing cocktails. It was a beautiful sunny day that would turn into a beautiful Pineapple evening. But not everyone was prepared for the ride, some first time cruisers were treated to a rude awakening when they learnt that the fun on the cruise also comes with a bit of bounce served by the strong water waves on the lake.

As we set off, the water glistened silver from the afternoon sun, while the water bounced with low tides. From the onset, the day was set out to be a relaxed, chill and hangout affair over a cocktail or bottle of Uganda Waragi Pineapple. With great hits from Simples Entertainment, the cruise set off at 2pm and took us down to Ggaba. To the left, the all year round lash green islands reminded us that Uganda is a natural beauty.  An assortment of bird species left their sanctuaries in the thick tropical forests and lined the skyline to give the cruisers something to marvel at.

To the right, the beachfront is lined with some of the most exotic mansions to match the affluent housing served by the rich and famous in Uganda’s upscale residential areas. Murmurs of Pastor Robert Kayanja, Salim Saleh, Gordon Wavamuno and even Sylvia Owori made the rounds.

It threatened to rain for a moment but revellers were unmoved, choosing to remain on the sundecks while others were hurdled inside catching up with old friends.  But just like the promise of Noah’s day, it did not rain. And so we sailed on further to Munyonyo. The smiling faces of fishermen from all sides, families catching the Independence Day mood at Speke Resort Munyonyo’s gardens all made our trip worthwhile. Occasionally speedboats zoomed past and created fanfare, and a bit of envy for many a cruiser who is fascinated by speed.

By the time we returned to the pier, the now beautiful orange sun was disappearing into the lake as the reality of the hustle and bustle of busy Kampala life stared us in the face. It was a relaxed day well spent forgetting the hustles of life, even just for a moment.

Below is his speech after the official handover of the travel facility.

“It’s was a great morning as I presented a BUS to WAKISO GIANTS FC at the home ground in Wakiso.

Upon my recent travel around the USA 2018,

As I was on my way to Phoenix I fortunately sat next to one kind Man, As we chatted he took me though an adventure of his business. I also shared to him who I was which got him overwhelmed and upon off boarding the flight we shared contacts and promised to reach out each other again.

Yes we did when I met him again In Oregon, we talked about passions in which I told him of what I do beyond music. I love sports and – Wakiso Giants FC my team that I have loved and supported regardless!!

He picked a lot of interest and asked me what best he can contribute to us.

On more talk he mentioned that he had a bus company and asked Whether giving WAKISO GIANTS one would make a change. I was so happy and immediately reached the administration of this team because he only gave a bus to the team and wasn’t responsible to ship and pay tax for it.

Long story short the Bus is finally here and today morning I officially handed it to the team together with the FUFA president Mr. Moses Magogo

I am so proud that we have ability that we can exploit if given a chance. PURPLE SHARKS – Enjoy your bus LEONE ISLAND MUSIC EMPIRE” Chameleone affirmed.
