When you talk about Awards of excellence in Uganda and you don’t mention the Digital Impact Awards, absolutely people can’t take you serious at all.


The prestigious Digital Impact Awards are the only Awards across the continent that recognize the role of embracing technology among individuals, companies and organizations.


This year’s Awards took place on September 08th 2016 at the Kampala Serena Hotel were different companies across Africa scooped different awards.


Since its always said that Memory is gold, definitely excellently organized events like this one do not need to be forgotten.


As far as parliament Avenue, different cultural music interludes could hesitatingly cool your ears with definition of the true African Culture.


The graphics and decoration inside Serena Vitoria Hall left revelers with only one option of opening eyes wide like an upcountry hen that has seen an eagle up in the sky.


The Emcee, wow, the self-Proclaimed King of Radio was indeed the King of the night. The fun and perfect articulation of his message made him own the audience. I also believe Prof. Vernesous Baryamureba signed in his book of fans after emcee confessed voting for him during recently concluded February presidential elections.
