I had to pick up my jaw off the floor! :eek2:

Is this the new master plan developed with Singaporean experts? I remember reading something along those lines.
I am glad you liked it, U.G Boy, you seem to be in Kigali now, can you update us on the construction of the Kigali Convention Center? Thanks

KIGALI, RWANDA -Ugandan tycoons, Sudhir, Joystina Ruparelia and a Rwandan counterpart, Hatari Sekoko are to spend US$200m on building a modern complex in Kigali.

The project on a seven hectare piece of land in the city surburb of Nyamirembo replacing a Police post that has been situated in the area for a long time, will have parking yard for both commuter and private vehicles. The tycoons will also construct shopping malls, plaza, apartments, hotels, hospitals and restaurants.

When East African Business Week visited the site, bulldozers and caterpillars were busy leveling the site. This site opposite 1930 Prison used to be a police station. The Police had to relocate to Nyamirambo to pave way for the complex on the prime land.

It is estimated 507 cars; with 169 minibuses and 145 buses will be accommodated in the area.

This might address the parking problem in the city where 60,000 vehicles are estimated to be operating daily.

The public has welcomed the project saying it will address the traffic problem in the city caused by cars parking on the streets and at times causing traffic jams.

Charles Ngarambe, CEO Kigali Bus Services, a man who came up with the idea of introducing rotational buses (pick and drop passengers) in the city proposes, "Regional buses should move immediately to ease traffic flow."

"The regional mini busses without parking yards have messed up (cause traffic jams) Kigali," Ngarambe says. It is only me (Kigali Bus Services) and ONATRACO with parking yard.

To ease traffic jams further, Kigali City Council is encouraging property developers to design their basements for parking.

Some of the buildings that have basement parking include City Tower and Insurance Plaza the Union Trade Centre has.

The emergency of this project does not only serve to provide a service to the city of Kigali, but also goes far in improving the trade relations between the two neighbours.

The Ruparelias are involved in a host of other businesses in Uganda which include Hotels and hospitality, banking sector, forex trade and the flower exporting industry under the Rosebud farm.
