He is more popular as a chef, but Uhuru Restaurant proprietor Salim Uhuru is also a seasoned politician. It is in his capacity as an LC III councillor for Kisenyi in Kampala that he made a trip to Manchester in the UK recently.
And he hadn’t gone to watch the derby of Manchester United take on Manchester City. It was official business that saw him meet his Lordship, James Gartside, the mayor of Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council, Manchester.
“We met and talked about development and which lessons KCCA could pick from his city,” the chef cum politician told Sqoop.
Uhuru also received a plaque in recognition of “fostering relations within the two cities.” Guess that calls for celebrations Uhuru, we shall bring the drinks, the pillawo is on you.
