If you thought you had had enough of Speke Resort, Munyonyo, you may want to try it again. The hotel’s proprietor, Sudhir Ruparelia has given it a face-lift, that has seen a number of the rooms remodelled and refitted to give them an air of elegance and class.
Following the renovation, the hotel now boasts of 45 suites- all tastefully furnished to world class standards; yet with an African touch.
Speke Resort Munyonyo is 4-Star rated by Uganda Tourism Board. It is also rated 4.5 on TripAdvisor. TripAdvisor ratings are displayed on a 1-5 scale, where 3 is average and 5 is excellent.
The luxurious facility is often the host of major domestic and international conferences, including those organised by government. The new additions will be a major boost to the hotel’s capacity and excellence in leisure, accommodation and hotel services.
Speke Resort Munyonyo is located at the shores of Lake Victoria, which gives guests the ultimate breeze and relaxation owing to the scenic views that the hotel affords them. But this not all with the new suites; the architectural design gives guests ample freshness of the waterfronts since the suites have expansive full-wall windows.
For interior decor, the designers gave it a touch of Africanness which further accentuates the feel in the rooms.

Bank of Uganda is not above the law and must be audited- Kadaga
The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga has ordered that the forensic audit into bank of Uganda by the Auditor General of Bank of Uganda’s takeover of Crane Bank in October 2016 and subsequent sale in January 2017 should go ahead as it does not contravene the sub judice rule being pleaded by Bank of Uganda.
The forensic audit into the sale of Crane Bank and other banks taken over and or sold by Bank of Uganda was ordered by the Parliamentary Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities & State Enterprises (COSASE) in April 2018 following an outcry from the public and the bank’s shareholders over a number of glaring irregularities.
However, The Auditor General on 23rd April 2018 wrote to the Speaker seeking clarification on whether he should go ahead with the Audit ordered by Parliament. This was after an April 19, 2018 letter by BoU Deputy Governor Dr. Louis Kasekende to the Attorney General protesting against the audit on grounds that such an inquiry offends the sub-judice rule.
On May 2nd 2018, Mr Christopher Gashirabake the Deputy Solicitor General wrote back to the BoU Governor on May 2 ordering the bank not to cooperate with either the Auditor General or Parliament regarding an investigation into the sale of Crane Bank on subjudice grounds.
The sub judice rule largely is applied to mean that a matter is already in the courts of law (under judicial consideration) and therefore is prohibited from public discussion elsewhere.
