Who doesn’t want good food? Well, after all the usual food festivities in town, Bushenyi’s biggest popular joint Kabagarame is extending it’s services to Kampala this Sarturday.
Dubbed “Kabagarame Kampala Food Festival,” the event will be happening this September 21 at Hiltop Hotel in Naguru,Kampala.
Speaking to Chimpreports, Owen Phillip the brains behind the festival said that there are some individuals who are trying to sabotage the event saying it won’t happen.
“After Tusker Lite coming on board, another group from Bushenyi started sabotaging the event saying it won’t be happening and that the organizers are fake.”
Asked whether the relevant authorities are aware of the event, Owen said they were cleared by KCCA and police among others.
“We have KCCA,Police’s permission and we also have the company’s registration certificate allowing us to do business,” he said.
Owen also told Chimpreports that nothing will change the sheduled date for the festival.
He also encouraged foodies to turn up in numbers as there is more to offer at Hiltop Hotel come Sarturday 21.
“Just come to have fun as you enjoy your delicacies the Kabagarame way,nothing is changed,not even the price which is at 10k ordinary and a table of 5 at only 100k.
Recently,Kabagarame market was at the risk of being sold when Mbarara High Court Deputy Registrar Amos Kwizera directed Best Associated Auctioneers and Court Bailiffs to sell the land on which the pork market sits, among other properties so as to recover Shs187m million Ishaka-Bushenyi Municipality owes one Manfred Muhumuza and others who own it.
All were later on resolved when the issue was taken to Parliament as area MPs protested a court order to auction the land on which the market sits.
The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga later on after Bushenyi Woman MP Mary Karoro Okurut and Ishaka-Municipality MP Gordon Arinda Cowboy made a submission before the floor of Parliament critising local government for attempting to sell Kabagarame which is a source of livelihood for thousands of people on a weekly basis,ordered the Attorney General to scrutinize the Mbarara High Court order and report back to the House within 30 days.
