KAMPALA – The Ruparelia Group’s giant Kingdom Kampala Mall has on Sunday, May 19 been unveiled to the public at a glamarous opening function in Kampala.
Mr. Rajiv Ruparelia, the Managing Director of Ruparelia Group, and wife Naiya, were joined by Kampala’s A-listers to unveil the breath taking mall, that is now ready for occupation and open to the public after being commissioned.
The magnificent building is located at Nile Avenue, Nakasero Hill, in capital Kampala.

According to Rajiv, nothing has been left out “for the building not to be called a “Grade A” building.
He says the building has been “tastefully designed to create unmatched shopping and working environments”.
“This is in line with our philosophy of satisfying the unmet need for affordable yet modern space,” Rajiv, told PML Daily.
The main entrance to the building is a delicate combination of steel, marble, glass, lighting and a touch of iron sculpture- giving off a classy finish.
The building has 2-floors of retail space, altogether, a total of 47 units, linked by an elevator. The building has been fitted with a modern sprinkler fire suppression system consisting of a 200,000-litre water tank and 2 fire pumps with a back-up generator.
