Kampala — Industrialist James Mulwana has died aged 76, his family has said. He was married with three children. The cause of his death is yet to be reported.
At the time of his death, Mulwana was he the chairman Standard Chartered Bank.
Just last year in August, he voiced concern Uganda's weak immigration laws that are fuelling the entry of more Chinese traders involved in petty street business.
"Petty trade is not encouraged by the Chinese government. The onus is on the immigration departments of the relevant country to set certain rules one needs to follow and the amount of money that one needs to have to be considered an investor in a country," he had said.
Mulwana's experience in the commercial world spans over five decades. He got started in the import and export business in 1961.
He is the brainchild behind Nice House of Plastics Limited, which he established in 1970. And in 1991, he gained full ownership of Uganda Batteries Limited.
