The Ham Group of Companies, commonly referred to as the Ham Group, is a privately owned conglomerate in Uganda.[1][2][3] Hamis Kiggundu, a wealthy Ugandan businessman, is a shareholder in each of the companies in the Group.[4][5]


The Ham Group was founded in 2005 by Hamis Kiggundu, initially focusing on garment trading.[6] Hamis learned business basics by helping his father, Hajji Segawa, in his textile shop and started his own business during school holidays with capital from his father. As his business grew, he moved into real estate, buying and selling land and properties.[7][2] In 2009, he established Ham Enterprises (U) Ltd and began constructing commercial properties.[3] His first major project was Ham Towers in Kampala, completed in 2010, followed by Ham Shopping Mall within 18 months, which boosted his rental income and enabled him to secure further bank financing.[2][8]

By 2021, the Ham Group had diversified into large-scale industrialization, particularly in agro-processing. A pilot project was the US$156 million Integrated Agro-Processing Industrial Plant (IAIP) at Akright City, aimed at adding value to Uganda's agricultural products.[9][3][10]
