Billionaire Kakyomya stood the test of time

By Hope Mafaranga

Erisa Kakyomya Apuuli is a household name in Toro sub-region. He is the proprietor of Rusekere Tea Growers Factory in Kabarole, a $3m project that buys tea leaves from 800 out-growers, employs 450 tea pluckers and 300 staff.
Kakyomya has invested in real estate and owns about a quarter of all the commercial structures in Fort Portal town as well as some in Kampala city.
He also owns sizeable chunks of land in Kabarole, Kyenjojo and Kibale districts. But things have not always been this rosy for the 70-year-old billionaire.
