  1. STOP calling this man a DOCTOR. He has done nothing to earn this. He does not have a degree in medicine or earned a doctorate. Donating money to a third rate university to get a doctorate does not entitle an ex London matatu driver to put DR in front of his name.

  2. Not true at all. You cannot rate Uganda Hotels based on hotels centred around the CBD areas and suburbs. The Tourism Board needs to do more research in other areas within Uganda but away from CBD.
    It is indeed a good initiative to rate our Hotels and see how much we fair with other EA counterparts. Some hotel facilities are dilapidated and service/ Customer Care is wanting – Ugandan ad International business and leisure travelers who use these Hotels should be given an opportunity to rate these Hotels as done by Trip Advisor….then an opinion poll can be done by professional audit firms to ascertain rating. 5*, 4*, 3*, 2* etc.
    There are still better and beautiful hotels out there in Uganda that the Ministry and its official have not yet explored/ visited. Please take time to conduct a national hotel appraisal before coming up with “half baked” reports!!!!
