Speke Resort Offering Goat Races Discounts On Accommodation

Speke Resort and Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort have said they are offering discounts on accommodation bookings during the night of the Royal Ascot Goat Races.

The Royal Ascot Goat Races will take place on 12th October 2019, at Speke Resort. The hotel said the amazing accommodation packages are tailored to satisfy their clients and enable them to enjoy the goat races.

The accommodation packages specially made for the night of the goat races will see clients also win tickets to the goat races upon booking a room.

on that day, the deluxe room will go for $149; superior room at $201; executive room at $201; executive suite at $400; presidential cottage $445 and presidential suite $573.

The Royal Ascot Goat Races is one of Uganda’s most popular social events. It is is an event of merrymaking and extravagant fashion.

 “The Goat Races are more than just another event in Uganda, it’s a place where people can come and network and mix along with business, pleasure and have a fun humorous time with good food and drinks all day long,” Ruparelia Group’s Managing Director Rajiv Ruparelia, the organisers of the event, said at launch in June at Kabira Country Club.

The goat races will entail eight races over the course of the day, with each race featuring eight goats. Anyone can sponsor a race, or buy a goat to participate in a race. The proceeds generated from the races will then go to a selected charity.

Races go for anything between Shs6m and Shs10m while goats go for between Shs500, 000 and Shs1m. Already, Gold Star, Euroflex and Orient Bank have already acquired goats of their own.

Away from the goats racing, the event boasts a rich tradition as the most exuberant unofficial fashion showcase in Uganda, and the organisers expect no different this year.

My Children Have Grown Up In A Way I Like Them To Grow – Sudhir

Businessman Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia is a proud father and he fronts it with a lot of pride and courage. He has no regrets as a father having raised three children – Meera, Sheena and Rajiv Ruparelia – in a manner that pleases him.

While addressing a congregation at Dr. Innocent Nahabwe’s book launch recently, Dr. Ruparelia acknowledged that he has been fortunate that his children are now old, hungry for success and hardworking.

“They have grown up in a way I like them to grow. My son Rajiv took over the construction of this building (Kingdom Kampala) and as you can see it is not a bad building. Many more building are coming,” Dr. Ruparelia said.

He was responding to the subject of embracing partnerships for business startups. Unlike other entrepreneurs, Dr. Ruparelia has not been lucky with business partnerships and he has learnt his lessons. “I am a lone rider,” he said.

And as he advances in age and his children coming of age, he has turned to family to push the Ruparelia Conglomerate forward. Daughter Sheena and Rajiv have taken up the mantle of the Ruparelia businesses with Rajiv as Managing Director.

Dr. Ruparelia and wife Jyostna have in the last three decades established businesses in almost all money-minting sectors – finance, education, tourism, real estate, hotels, entertainment, and floriculture among others.

They have created jobs, become leading tax years and transformed lives and the economy. They continue to do so.
