Uganda: Kampala City Centre Floods

Most parts in Kampala's low-lying areas Monday afternoon turned into 'small lakes' following a downpour that lasted for an hour.

Slums and wetlands in Kampala and its suburbs were most affected, with water gushing into people's houses and denying some people access to the main roads.

The most affected areas were the city centre, down town around Nakivubo stadium, Clock Tower, Kisenyi, Bwaise, Kalerwe, Kireka, Katwe and Ndeeba, among others.
