Meddie takes over the US

When us ordinary mortals desire a respite, we think of Aero Beach, Lido and the likes but moneybags Meddie Ssentongo is definitely not our class; he goes to the US. The flamboyant chap has lined up a two-week work-holiday in Uncle Sam’s land stating that he “needed a short break” off the social scene in Uganda.
We managed to get hold of him after landing in New York this week. He also mentioned doing business in the states.

“I’m here to rest, to oversee my businesses here and also shop for new equipment for my construction company Electrolax General Contractors,” he said adding that he will also attend a conference in Los Angeles where he is set to meet donors who will contribute to his charity project Mutima Gwa Gwanga.

“There are so many people willing to help or even invest in Uganda but they don’t have anyone to talk to and encourage them,” he said. “I’m here to connect Uganda to these people. My goal has and will always remain helping Ugandans, especially the youth to develop.” We also managed to get some of Meddie’s pictures in New York.
