           WARID Telecom

Uganda Investment Authority held its annual event dubbed ''Investor of the Year'' an event that looks at investors who have expanded their projects, or those who have invested in the country in the last one year.

Warid Telecom emerged the Gold winner of the Investor of the year awards 2008 which was held at Hotel Africana yesterday. The Silver award went to Jomayi Property Consultants a real estate company owned by two Ugandans and Bronze to Sameer Agriculture and Livestock Limited. The theme for the year was Corporate Social Responsibility.

The Chief Guest was the Minister of Finance, Planning and Economic Development, Hon. Ezra Suruma who represented the President. Other ministers present were Minister Sam Kuteesa and Hon Prof. Kiwanuka Semakula, the minister in charge of Investments. Google's Country Director for Uganda Ms Rachel Payne was also present.

The 2008 winner also had very good news for those who were thinking of connecting to the Internet at affordable rates. Out of the very many packages, they had the EDGE/GPRS USB Stick which acts as the modem costing 150,000/- (once off) and a monthly of 85,000/- to connect to the Internet. As we wait for the underground cables which are expected later in the year, this can be a cheap alternative for now.

Last year the overall winner was Quality Chemicals a company based in Luzira that deals in Antiretroviral drugs.
