CWG Uganda, he hinted, would service corporate businesses, government and other private and public enterprises that would require taking their businesses and establishments to the next level.

“The company would be run by highly tested and skilled professionals from Uganda, some countries in East Africa and across the African continent,” he said.

Okere pointed out that there are also plans to train and develop professionals with interest in ICT in Uganda.

“CWG Uganda has currently as it’s first Country Manager, Mr. Michael Manzi, a Ugandan who is a renowned business and strategy professional, who has spent over ten years in the communications and technology industry,” he said.

Further, he said Manzi would be leading the team and driving the brand for Computer Warehouse Group within the region.

He emphasised that CWG believes in the ethics around corporate governance which has earned the company an array of national, African and international awards overtime.
