Ugandan government that also has shared in Speke Resort Munyonyo is meeting 50 percent of the costs through the Uganda Development Corporation (UDC). This means the Ruparelia Group is also footing 50% of the total construction costs.

UDC is the investing arm of the Government of Uganda, whose mission is to establish or invest in sustainable investments in areas strategic to Uganda’s social and economic transformation and prosperity.
