Rolex Promotion Useless – Tamale Mirundi
By Serestino Tusingwire
Senior Presidential Adviser on Media, Tamale Mirundi has blasted the Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife over ‘the Rolex’ promotion.
Mirundi said this while appearing on NBS television this morning. According to Mirundi, the Rolex promotion is useless and it is an indicator that Uganda is lagging behind in terms of development compared to other countries.
“Other countries are going to the moon, you are here praising yourself because of Rolex,” Mirundi wondered. “How many tonnes of Rolex has Uganda exported so far?” he asked
The Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife last weekend launched the campaign to promote this Ugandan popular local street food.
State minister for tourism, Godfrey Kiwanda Ssubi, said the campaign sought to create more demand for the Rolex as a fast food which he believes will attract more tourists, thus increasing foreign exchange.
Many Ugandans including some legislators are still adamant on the belief that Rolex can really improve the Uganda’s foreign exchange.
