CHAPTER ONE

1.0 BACKGROUND

Sheraton Hotel Kampala sits on the southwest slopes of Kampala, the Capital City of Uganda. It was built in 1965 as the Apollo Hotel named after the then Prime Minister Apollo Milton Obote. When Obote was overthrown in a military coup by Idd Amin in 1971, the Hotel was renamed Kampala International hotel. Following the overthrow of Idd Amin by Tanzanian Forces and The Uganda National Liberation Army in 1979, the Hotel reverted to Apollo Hotel. There were other regime changes in the Country in 1985 and 1986. The National Resistance Movement which ascended into power in 1986 liberalized the economy and Middle Eastern investors won the rights to lease the Hotel from the government of Uganda and manage it for the next 25 years starting from 1999. The Investors won a franchise from Sheraton Hotels and Resorts to use the Sheraton name on the establishment. The Hotel then underwent extensive renovations to the present where it’s one of the best Hotels in Uganda (4 Star Hotel).
