Yesterday was day one for Uganda’s newest Tourism brand Ambassador and businesswoman Zari Hassan as she embarked on exploring and exposing the beauty of our motherland to the outside world together with her team and official photographer, Access Films
To kick start the project, Zari yesterday toured greater Masaka, making the first stop at the Equator in Kikutuzi-Mpigi District, Kayabwe. Zari in company of singer Iryn Namubiru, her sister, Zulehah among others were able to pose for photos at the monument with Zari holding the Uganda flag.
Their next stop was Lukaya town where we stopped for road side bites. Zari described the place as ‘clean, food tastes great and fresh. Most of all, the people have great hospitality.’
They also made a brief stop at the famous ‘Akatale kaba maama’ women’s market and had a chat with them. “If you ever find a woman selling at a stall, please don’t bargain for discounts, just pay. Matter of fact top up something or better still leave the change behind. These are real life hustlers trying to keep their kids in school, medical bills etc as the rate of single mothers has risen lately.” Zari said.
They then went to Igongo country hotel, Mbarara and later summed up their day Igongo cultural center where they embraced the Kinyankole culture dressed in Mishanana.
