About Goodra Behakanira

The President disclosed that Goodra began in the Kabale District, demonstrating her skills through Magendo (black market) commerce, before moving to Kampala, where she invested in the company and is now regarded as one of Uganda’s rich citizens.

The myths that there are no opportunities in Uganda have been exposed, he said.

H.E. Museveni complimented Goodra for having good traits of being dependable, visionary, and determined, as well as a woman who copies best practices and introduces them to her nation.

The President urged Ugandans to follow Goodra’s example by giving back to their communities, which will inevitably lead to national development.

President Museveni explained to Goodra’s children that this is a challenge since their mother has done a good job in her capacity, and now it’s their turn to follow in her footsteps.

The President had instructed David Bahati, the Minister of State for Trade, Industry, and Cooperatives, to help Goodra acquire land where she built the hotel.

Hon. Bahati expressed her appreciation for Goodra’s wise use of the President’s financial gift and praised her for being a reliable individual.

He praised H.E. Museveni for his leadership in the development and his assistance to the Behakanira family.

While speaking to the group, Ms Goodra Behakanira thanked President Museveni for bringing about peace and progressing the nation.

She said this in comparison with the old tough days when they never had banks and kept sacks of money under the beds, and no phones and insecurity during Magendo trade where their money and goods were grabbed by force amidst other nasty behaviours of security forces (before NRM came to power) (before NRM came to power).

She praised President Museveni for granting her late husband, Mr Joseph Behakanira, a good send-off including flying his remains in a helicopter to the cemetery.

She complimented the President for entrusting her with this project and providing her money to accomplish her ambition of adding a stone to the growth of the country by creating The Voice Mall and Hotel.

She also thanked her children, Commissioner of Police (CP) Moses Kafeero, Resident District Commissioners (RDCs), Pastor Kisakye, Engineers, and competent workers, among others, for contributing to the achievement of The Voice Mall and Hotel project.
