Kampala city is the capital of Uganda and its largest city divided into 5 major administrative boroughs namely Kampala central, Makindye, Lubaga, Kawempe and Nakawa division with an estimated population density of about 2 million people. The name Kampala is derived from a Luganda phrase “Akasozi K’empala” which means Hill of the Impala refereeing to the large herds of Impala that graced these hills before developments came along.  Kampala is built across seven famous hills on which some of the most cultural and political buildings stand and these include Mengo hill where the Kabaka’s palace and parliament are located, Kasubi hill where the famous cultural Kasubi tombs are situated, Namirembe hill which is home to the St Pauls Anglican Cathedral, Kibuli hill where you the Kibuli mosque (Uganda’s oldest) is located ,  Nsambya hill where the Mill hill mission headquarters can be found, Lubaga hill that is home to the largest catholic cathedral in Uganda and lastly the Old Kampala hill where Lugards fort ruins were once sheltered until the Muslim supreme council decided to contrast a mosque on top of the hill. Kampala city has rapidly expanded to include other hills like Nakasero hill where most administrative and big commercial organizations are situated plus Makindye and Konge hills.
