Projects to transform Kampala

UGANDAN President Yoweri Museveni has launched two major projects that are set to transform the country’s capital Kampala.

Museveni officiated at the launch of the Kasubi Market, in central Kampala and later presided over the start of a major infrastructure project.

“ As part of efforts to make Kampala a more organised city, I presided over the commissioning of the new Kasubi Market and the launch of construction works on the Lubigi and Nakamiro drainage channels

“Kasubi Market will house over 1,400 traders though currently only 800 are using it because of SOPs on social distancing. With this facility functional, I urge those who have been selling merchandise along the roads to use it instead.,” Museveni said.

The Ugandan President said the Lubigi and Nakamiro drainage channels will relieve the people of Kawempe and Bwaise of flooding especially in the rainy season. The project will be completed in 12 months.
