It was a double celebration as businessman Sudhir Ruparelia hosted Indians at his home in Kololo and then at Speke Resort Munyonyo as they celebrated 50 years since former president Idi Amin sent them away from Uganda.

The celebrations began on Thursday at his home, where they ate and drank until the early hours of the morning, and continued on Friday evening in Munyonyo with additional activities, including surprise performances, among others.

In attendance were Indians from Uganda and others from different parts of the world.

They were joined by Ugandans, including business mogul Ephraim Ntaganda and media personality Andrew Mwenda.

Sudhir and his wife Jyotsna served them drinks and food as they enjoyed the night.
