Could be anywhere. There are many, many neighbourhoods with the same set-up like this all over the city nowadays...or should I say, on the outskirts of the city.

I remember those days...no overpass, no diving lines, no drainage. Almost seems like yesterday, things changed so quick

Yea very much so, there is even working trafikk lights and road signs . trafik Police are alwayes present, for some reason, when people are driving on that location they tend to follow the trafik rules lol as a result The trafik flows really smooth even on rush hours. The new trafic nightmare is when you reach Megangna.

The location for the convention center being in the CMC area is a bad idea. Why build it in the suburbs? Actually, I have never heard of a convention center built in the suburbs. Why not in the Sengatera area (Financial district) or near the African Union?

Good point! Plus the architectural design is not exactly the most amazing that I've ever seen as it does not flow with the street layout of the area. Even Rwanda has recently built a much nicer and greener one in central CBD of Kigali. Lets just hope that a more attractive one will be built in the proposed future downtown (Legaher) in the foreseeable future!

Kigali's convention center!
