El Nino Rains Frustrate Katanga Residents

The rains that started early morning today at around 06:00am left most of the residents in Katanga frustrated and “cursing the day they were born.” Traders, buyers, hawkers and many others were affected.

Katanga is one of the biggest slum areas in Kampala. It is located between Wandegeya and Mulago Hospital. The rains have continued to affect every business based in the slum area.

The heavy rain also paralyzed transport means as the murram road connecting the Bombo road to Mulago road was cut off by heavy running water and mud.

A modest proposal for the boda-boda industry

I salute all my brothers and sisters both actively and passively involved in this notorious faction of the economy. This sector is so big that Mulago Hospital spends Shs1.5 billion on treating boda boda patients each year. On-the-road actors in Kampala alone outnumber Makerere University students by far.
