Famous Good African Coffee shops which were closed a few days ago have been re-opened, we can confirm. The coffee shops were re-opened today.
Good African Coffee shops at Lugogo and Entebbe belonging to city businessman Andrew Rugasira were closed by the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) on Monday due to tax arrears.
The reopening follows the signing of an agreement between URA and Mr Rugasira on how to pay the arrears.
The closure of the shops had sparkled off debate from the both the public and entrepreneurs saying the action was not good for coffee, the country’s leading export earner.
Experts said the closure of Good African Coffee shops could have a negative impact on the campaign to brand Uganda’s specialty coffee and its consumption but with its re-opening now, things might get back to normal.
