Dr. Najib Lukooya Bateganya (Environment and Natural Resources), Owek.Yudaya Babirye (Kyabazinga Affairs), Omuk Alfred Okurut, the King commended Hajj Muwanga and team for the job well done.
“From all the places that we have been to throughout the day, I’m really impressed with what I have seen here. It’s a whole chain and there’s no wastage of your items during the production process,” the Kyabazinga observed adding that empowering and supporting locally made products will go a long way in addressing unemployment while complimenting the GoU’s Buy Uganda Build Uganda (BUBU) policy.
The King also thanked management for creating a conducive environment that has enabled employment opportunities to thrive. On his part, Owek.Kiirya asked the Managing Director and the board to prioritize establishing another entity of the stature of Luuka Plastics in Busoga.
“We are proud of you as our own. We are delighted that you’re part of the team fighting unemployment in our country on top of remitting taxes. However, we implore you to establish another Luuka Plastics factory in Busoga,” Ivan Kiirya proposed.
