Gitawo who is a well-known spender, says his new car will kiss the dusty Kampala roads come December this year.

Gitawo further revealed that the new addition to his fleet cost him over Shs600million
The ML 63 AMG, Model 2016
The ML 63 AMG, Model 2016 accelerates to 62mph in less than five seconds – every bit as quickly as a Porsche Cayenne Turbo or a BMW X5 M, and quite a lot more than a Range Rover Sport Supercharged.
The ML 63 AMG’s twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre V8 engine has more cubic capacity than any other performance SUV.
And while its standard 518bhp and 516lb ft of torque aren’t outstanding outputs amongst some very powerful rivals, if you spend £6165 on Merc’s optional Performance Pack, you can endow your ML with 549bhp and 561lb ft – which are unsurpassed in the class.
Price £82,995; Engine V8, 5461cc, twin turbocharged petrol; Power 518bhp at 5250-5750rpm; Torque 516lb ft at 1750-5500rpm; Gearbox 7-spd automatic; Kerb weight 2345kg; Top speed 155mph; 0-62mph 4.8sec; Economy 23.9mpg (combined); CO2/tax band 276g/km
