FEATURED: How Tycoon Sudhir’s Meera Investments is giving other construction firms sleepless nights

Tycoon Sudhir Ruparelia is the Chairman of Ruparelia Group, a Parent Company of Meera Investments Ltd

If you thought there is any sphere of influence in this town into which Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia (arguably the richest man in Uganda) doesn’t intend to dominate, just read this.

Already a dominant force with a compelling presence in provision of education, leisure & hospitality, real estate, medical, labor externalization, agriculture, and the media industry, the Ruparelia Group is also into the construction industry too with Meera Investments Limited – where it is competing with giants like Seyani Brothers and others.

Renowned for being one who craves new challenges all the time, Sudhir will also be competing with the Chinese who for decades have been having a lion’s share of the infrastructure construction deals.

The man, who owns countless buildings in the Kampala central business district and upscale neighborhoods like Munyonyo and Kololo, must equally be strategizing to fill the vacuum left by the crumbling of giants like Roko Construction and the latest we have is that he is on the verge of being contracted to construct the Uganda Development Bank (UDB) headquarters at the location where the Pastel Building (formerly headquarters of OPM) currently stands.

It’s a multi-billion job and winning the contract will effectively launch the shrewd Ruparelia Group into the construction space where they intend to dominate in areas like building, road and other public infrastructure construction.
