The management of Speke Resort Hotel and Conference Centre, Munyonyo, has clarified about the air conditioning mess at the ongoing East African Heads of State Summit, an issue of concern raised by President Yoweri Museveni.
Addressing the delegates during yesterday’s session, Mr. Museveni noted that the sweltering heat in a congested room had inconvenienced those in attendance.
“I am very sorry about your suffering; I can see you are all sweating but this is as a result of poor organization by the Ugandan group who are always determined to inconvenience our visitors, I don’t know for what reason,” a tough-talking Museveni said.
But speaking on condition of anonymity, one of the top managers at Munyonyo said the organisers failed to carry out satisfactory preparations, inviting 700 delegates and booking space for only 400 guests.
“Given the number of attendants of the Summit, the organizers of the summit also put very large screens which came with a lot of heat,” said the manager.
Speke Resort owned by business mogul Sudhir Ruparelia is one of the few 5-star resorts in Kampala Uganda offering the ultimate in luxury accommodation and leisure facilities with the finest conference and business meetings.
