The State Minister for Tourism Godfrey Kiwanda last year launched the Kampala Rolex Festival after renowned media outlet Cable News Network (CNN) ranked the snack as fastest growing new African fast food.
But with time, the Minister ‘lost steam’ and this year he has remained largely mute about the snack that is enjoyed by Ugandans of all walks of life.
Well, Coca Cola has resurrected the story of the delicacy and last evening people residing and working in Kyengera and the surrounding areas were treated to fun and excitement as the Kampala Rolex Week festivities commenced.
Commenting about the Kampala Rolex Week, Coca-Cola Uganda Brand Manager Rodney Nzioka expressed his delight to be part of the celebration of a Ugandan food consumed by different people with different backgrounds and social classes.
“Coca-Cola is proud to associate with Kampala Rolex Festival. We remain committed to offering our consumers unique moments and experiences as they enjoy their favorite drink in the right company,” he commented.
During the Coca-Cola Kampala Rolex Week, teams will visit different markets across Kampala – Kyengera, Ggaba landing site, Kasangati, Katwe/ Namasuba and Nansana – holding rolex making competitions and awarding winners with Coca-Cola goodies.
“The Kampala Rolex Week is just another example of the beverages giant’s continued association with food and belief in one of the most celebrated rituals among families and friends – enjoying meals together,” one of the beneficiaries said.
