This month’s Lamudi Social media challenge featured Mr. Andrew Mukiibi, the President of the Association of Real Estate Agents of Uganda, and Mr. Simon Kaheru, Head of SMS MEDIA as chief guests.
On Thursday September 4th Lamudi Uganda once again held the prize giving for their social media challenge at their offices. The event featured a brief presentation from AREA Uganda (Association of Real Estate Agents) and SMS media about the IT industry and real estate. The winner of the challenge, David Nalwebe, and the two runners up were presented with their winnings of 300,000 UGX and gift hampers respectively by the guests of Honor, the president of the Association of Real Estate Agents of Uganda Andrew Mukiibi and SMS media head Simon Kaheru.
This also presented an opportunity to announce the upcoming East African Real estate investment conference in November, which Lamudi will participate in. Due to the current and potential utility of Lamudi’s growing database, they expect to be integral to the conference. Companies in attendance will be looking to Lamudi for insight into where to invest and into current and future market trends.
