About Hamis Kiggundu

Kiggundu also said he had plans to build a residential estate with up to 500 homes.

Kiggundu is interested in agriculture, philanthropy and education.
He has published two books on business and says, “With God’s will, I have achieved substantially on an individual level. If it is about cars, I have driven them all. If it is about houses, I have built the best. What I am looking at is beyond the personal. I am looking at a legacy. What can I do for my society? What difference can I make in my country?”
