Uganda: Where Land Investors Should Focus

Kampala — According to the CIA world fact book, in July 2012 Uganda had a population of about 35.8 million people. 49.9% of these were below the age of 15.

In fact, the average age of a Ugandan is 15. Uganda has one of the youngest populations in the world. For every 1000 people, there are 48 new births and the population growth rate is 3.85%. This begs the question; Where are all the youth going to reside in the near future.

In 15 years, most of Uganda's population, today, will be 30 years of age. Kampala is currently the centre of most business activity. It houses all the main government offices, all the main NGOs and is the most desirable place to seek employment and settle.
