Buganda kingdom has renewed its partnership with Kansai Plascon Uganda for another three years following the end of the first 4-year partnership contract.

The partnership renewal cooperation was announced by Buganda kingdom prime minister Charles Peter Mayinga and Plascon’s managing director Santosh Gumte at a press briefing at Bulange, Mengo.

Plascon, a Japan-based company and a leading global paints brand agreed to continue painting various kingdom institutional buildings - with a total of 11,573 square meters to be painted annually. Under the partnership, Plascon will also continue supporting various kingdom activities including the Kabaka birthday run, coronation celebrations, Bulungi Bwansi, and many other community development projects.

“I’m grateful for this long-term relationship with Plascon, the leading paint brand in Uganda. We believe the kingdom and everyone that stays within its boundaries is going to partake of the benefits of this partnership. We have already had the company paint the Masengere building, Bulange building, Mengo coats. They’ve also agreed to support our community development projects in order to uplift the livelihoods of our people. Plascon has been and remains the kingdom’s exclusive paint partner of choice and at all events they will be recognised as our sector partners,” Mayiga.

Plascon’s Santosh was equally appreciative of the renewed relationship stating that it was further confirmation of the company’s status as the dominant paint brand in Uganda.

“For Plascon, culture, social development and community upliftment are core aspects of our brand ethos. We believe that economic development must be done together with cultural preservation and social development. Our commitment to his Majesty the Kabaka of Buganda and his subjects, the people of Buganda, is that Plascon will support all initiatives that promote development, social harmony, health, and the prosperity of the kingdom and Uganda at large. It is no surprise that we have also worked with the kingdom of Tooro and the Kingdom of Bunyoro with similar goals. We are honoured by this renewed partnership and look forward to a long and successful relationship. This is a really significant occasion in the journey of Plascon,” said Santosh.

One is anxious to understand the environmental credentials of Plascon in terms of the use of lead metal in the modern paints on the market.

One cannot dispute the beauty of painted houses in the tropical sunshine, but the health danger exists. The other point is about the immense cost of buying paints every so often as the brown dust in the city of Kampala is a very normal and acceptable pollution occurrence.

Kampala has a city authority that has imposed tax rates any how on buildings without any care for such housing constraints!
