That was not to be. After his education in Norway, Ham decided to go into business due to his love for the financial world.
He started small businesses in Norway through his investment company Gala and Karl Investment. The company employed students and jobless immigrants. Those who took up employment in his company benefitted economically and became self-empowered. While running the company, Ham was not satisfied with that so he decided to start a Night club that he named Safari club. The club attracted many Africans and other residents in Oslo alike.
The problem with the club Ham was running was the fact that there was no way to expand it to cater for top class clientel, like those who wanted to relax in a swimming pool while having their afternoon drinks.
He decided to involve two Norwegians and that did not go down well becuase of disagreements on how to run the enterprise arose.
Ham later invited this writer to join the business. It was not long that this writer took over the business in agreement with Ham. This happened because Ham wanted to establish a more executive Night Club elsewhere.
Soon after, he joined a telecommunication company that was to be started in Uganda in collaboration with the Norwegian giant company Telenor. He was later to take up employment in the company where he worked for sometime before re-establishing himself in Night club business in the centre of Uganda’s capital Kampala.
The Night Club he is involved in is named after the good wine “Lebeaujolais” that is enjoyed by the high class drinkers . Lebeaujolais Night Club featured on Facebook is reportedly popular. The place is said to be fully parked with Ugandans and others who are out to kill the weekend now and then.
Ham continues to visit Norway whenever he can, sometimes twice a year, alone or with his family. He has many friends in Oslo whom he likes to party with when he is around.
He is blessed with two boys whom he seems to be guiding to become businessmen when they grow up.
