KCCA To Modernize Kampala Markets

ampoule geneva;”>“We are fighting to see all the vendors who are still working on the streets get space in these markets and leave the streets this financial year. So that’s why we want to construct more modernized markets, mind ” noted Peter Kaujju, Public Relations Officer KCCA.

Some of the markets which are already under construction include the Wandegeya market which according to the facility consultant will be ready by October 30, 2013. “The esteemed number of beneficiaries is 1400 people,” noted to the consultant.

Kaujju added: “The Busega market land was procured and its ready for re-development by BADEA which will be funding the project. USAFI is already operating. Furthermore a new open market in Kisenyi developed by a private investor using BADEA funds has been commissioned by KCCA to be occupied.”

The new markets will be constructed in Kasubi, Ntinda, Nakulabye and Nabutiti where a market land title has been secured.


“Any time construction will start in these areas,” he noted.

Meanwhile St. Balikudembe market (Owino) is among the markets that will be rehabilitated because of its congestion.

“Congestion in Owino may be the sole cause of the constant fire out breaks and there is also need for creation of space between one stall and another,” noted Kaujju.

Kaujju asserted that after the construction is done for these markets, they will have enough parking area, wide stalls, children’s care and health facilities fit to be modernized.

He further called upon all the vendors who are still operating on the streets of Kampala to occupy these markets and advised those with small stocks to make groups and get stalls if they do not want KCCA to continue confiscating their property.
