Wakiso District Chairman Lwanga Bwanika has stopped the Environmental Fight against Rosebud and Premier Roses the two flower farms along Entebbe road after realizing the fact that the operations of two flower farms do not in anyway  infringe on environment after 10 years of fighting.

Bwanika has been quoted in the media on several occasions claiming that the companies mistreat their workers. He has also wrongly claimed that the companies have been encroaching on Lake Victoria and destroying the environment 

In a twist of events, Bwanika says he has never heard about any complaints from workers and never has he heard about environmental problems 


Lwanga was speaking from Namulanda in Entebbe where the company chief executive Director Rajiv Ruparelia gave out household items including mattresses to the workers.

 "I have never heard about complaints be it labor related or remuneration or the welfare of the staff around & I have never had any problem significantly concerning environmental conservation

Rajiv said the company intends to expand its operations which will benefit the workers and Uganda's economy 

"This means we are creating more jobs and Uganda is getting more foreign exchange and as the market grows abroad we will expand our operations which will increase more earnings to the company and the economy at large" Rajiv said

Rosebud ltd is the leading flower exporter in Uganda providing employment to many Ugandans on its different farms. 

According to Ruparelia, both Premier roses and Rosebud have exported 120 million roses this year and next year they're targeting to export 150 million roses.
