KAMPALA – The highly anticipated Rolex Festival that went down Sunday, August 19 attracted several revellers and Kampala’s top A-Listers to a fun-filled event
The Rolex Festival is an annual Event that has become a tourism experience both for locals and international revellers that seek to identify with the Ugandan delicacy, “Rolex”
For developed Countries talking about a Rolex, one thinks of an expensive Watch or accessory but here in Uganda, it has become one of the most sought for delicacies.
The Rolex is prepared by rolling chapatti with the omelette with ingredients like sliced tomatoes (nyanya mbiisi), onions, green pepper and cabbage. Its preparation takes at most 5-7 minutes and averages shs2,000 depending on the location and facility.
This year’s edition added a spark to the taste with several types of Rolex made by various sellers that included beef, Chicken, vegetable; all prepared on the client’s preference
Due to high demand for the Rolex, one went for between Shs10,000 to Shs15,000. The drinks included all kinds of beers and spirits but the sodas were restricted to Century bottling company Products since Coca-Cola was a title sponsor of the show.
The Event attracted very many sponsors like Coca-cola, Uganda Tourism Board, Ministry of Tourism, Abaachi Gas and many others.
“We are very glad that this idea that started as a small event has grown into one of the most sought for Kampala events with crowds especially the locals and internationals,” said Former Miss Tourism Enid Mirembe, one of the brains behind the event.
She added that it was a great achievement to the Tourism industry since it is a source of income for many youths around Kampala; reducing unemployment
