You are so obsessed....Uganda is not going ot overtake Kenya, at least not in my lifetime.

and Kampala wont be the largest city in 10 years. The way Nairoby is growing, you are not near catching them. Loose all that illusionist dreams.

what do u think is going to happen if uganda starts producing its oil, it has been a well to do country without oil but after how ill it look like,
kampala is projected to be the largest city in East Africa by 2020.

ugandan na mutiima!
This is a juz a joke! It will take 100 yrs if Kenya's economy becomes grounded for UG to overtake Kenya. Nairobi can only be ranked with J'burg, but not Kampala..it will take a thausand yrs for Kampala to be bigger than Nairobi. BUT ANYWAY, GO UGANDA GO KAMPALA. HIT THE RIGHT LANE! And only if Oil does not become a curse like many other African countries!!!!

Yea KE is right, 100 years is too huge. Nobleskills don't be arrogant.:)

However, I predict that the whole of EA, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia will experience some phenomenal economic growth in the coming years IF there is political stability.

Kenya is well positioned to benefit from the economic prosperity of its neighborhoods it being the gateway of East and Central Africa.

This means economic prosperity of Kenya's neighbours will also uplift the economy of Kenya as they use the Kenyan ports, road and rails both MSA and the upcoming one at Lamu increasing revenue to Kenya. Also more disposable income in neighbouring countries will mean bigger market for kenyan products as people are able to afford.

Kenyan prosperity will also be a boon to economies of neighboring counties as Kenyan firms invest and diversify to neighboring countries increasing employment opportunities in this countries.

Its like we are all interconnected in some form of symbiotic relationship.

Thats true kenguy
Kenya and uganda are symbiotic countries
Any politioca instability in either would be felt by both
Which is why we pray that they both prosper
Instability in Uganda would affect the export activity in Kenya
Instability in Kenya would affect Uganda imports e.g oil ( for now anyway)

kenguy, virgil, sleekpiano

you guys know discussion, i like yo art of arguement , uganda has entered the league of billion barrell, read;
www.newvision.co.ug
There is a resource called oil and gas, these resources r the most profitable resources on world earth, they have led to development and boom of economies, they have made weak countries to become strong countries, who knew Nigeria without oil before 1950, now who can compare Nigeria with any African country, its projected the the richest native african nation the largest companies natively, with the biggest number of wealth native men in nigeria.Nigerian r very strong men but after discovery of oil, who knew Angola without Oil but now Angola attracts the biggest number of Investors in Africa because of oil.
Neva compare and contrast before internally looking at something, i compared kampala to Nairobi because of what am seeing is going on.
any one who has been to Uganda should have noticed how ugandA IS CHANGING, u go to nakasero another sub CBD and see what going on, the government is planning to even move the city from south to north thats the nakasero, people allow Uganda oil discovery has brought a lot of investors in the country where most of them r chinese and indians.
Many indian of Ugandan descent in Diaspora rushed back home to Uganda to purchase land because of Oil.

compare uganda and Kenya know that
uganda has discovered oil and that Kenya is the largest economy in East and Central Africa.

If Kenya goes down, Uganda will go down as well. bUt if Uganda goes down, they will go down alone.
Butembo your arguements r very kiddish, vienna in europe has no natural resource to get it compared to paris and london, yet kampala has a natural resources which is very viable and profitable to compare it with Nairobi^^:eek:hno:

And even when Uganda starts producing oil, it will still have to export it through Kenya. Not to mention the probability of Kenya becoming the main export market for Uganda's oil.

I really dont think so. When Uganda had problems in the 70's and 80's the impact was felt more acutely in Kenya than in any other country. And when Kenya had problems recently, Uganda was the one that felt the impact compared to any other country.

yes
i mean even if uganda stops inporting oil
it still imports so many other things that have to go through kenya e'g cars and anything made abroad
so kenya should not be too scared uganda still depends on it for alot
it should only be scared if uganda grew a coastline ha ha hah:)

That's because Uganda uses Mombasa port for allmost 100% of it imports and exports. Yes , Kenya will feel more pain than anyone esle. Uganda doesn't even use TZ ports. How is TZ supposed to feel the pain?

But Uganda not using mombassa doesn't mean , Kenya will fail, will it?

The economies of these two countries have become really interwoven over the last couple of years that a problem in one will lead to problems in the other. Its not just the port, it would affect areas ranging from manufacturing to education across the region.

WE r all dependents

kenguy i like yo arguements, uganda depends on kenya and kenya depends on uganda.Did u know that the thing which has led to kenya's development is having Uganda as its hinterland coz every thing in ugandan shops and supermarkets r made by Kenyan, so if Uganda starts making these products which r similarand familiar, Kenyan products wont have much market,

Kenya has the richest hinterland in the whole of Africa and that called Uganda, many may say what about Nigeria, South Africa or Egypt, These countries have no neigbours who dont have costs, all Nigerian neigbours have coastline and those which dont have r very poor like the Chads, Nigers and others and South Africa's neighbours all have coastlines and the ones with no coastline like Zibwabwe r problematic

AM A UGANDAN WITH LOVE
