How the rich ‘entered’ 2015

It was a festive mood on New Year's Eve.

Don’t expect the so called Rich Gang here. By rich, we are not talking about people whose source of income is debatable. We are not talking about people who might make ask where they went when their financial taps eventually run dry or people who might serve a jail term for being conmen.

By rich, we mean loaded fellows whose billions speak for themselves and they don’t need to throw dollars in nightclubs and theme parties to announce that they are rich. We mean people who spend their money, because they have it, but not to attract attention.

While the wanainchi were in Sheraton gardens welcoming 2015, the loaded fellows and their families were at the hotel’s poolside enjoying a six course international cuisine dinner. From Ugandan luwombo to sea food like prawns to Mongolian, the loaded fellows wined and dined as Citi Blend band serenaded them with live music as they waited for fireworks.

A plate here cost Shs200,000 but most of these guys carried families of about six, forking out Shs1.2m just for dinner. Many of them even booked hotel rooms to stay overnight with their families because they didn’t want to stomach the chaos of driving in a frenzied city with drunkards celebrating the dawn of the New Year.

Unfortunately, we did not take pictures of these highbrow families because they requested privacy, but we have photos of their experience to share with you. Check them out.
