The tale of Makerere’s unfinished buildings

Makerere’s Uganda Commercial Bank (UCB) building, popularly known as The Un Completed Block (UCB) would be housing Bank of Uganda now and that would undoubtedly make Makerere the most interesting institution in the country besides its being Africa’s 4th finest institution.
However, following then president Idi Amin Dada’s self imposed exile in 1979, the hope of completing its construction which had began in the early 70s waned despite its lease to the bank.
