Jinja, Uganda’s second largest urban centre, lies 80km to the east of Kampala on the shores of Lake Victoria. Approaching the town from Kampala involves travelling across the Owens Falls Dam and over the world’s longest river, the Nile, which starts its 6,500 km journey to the Mediterranean Sea on the west side of Jinja. A golf course and gardens are laid out along the banks and the river’s starting point is marked with among other things, a bust of Ghandi and on the west bank is a monument marking where the English explorer, James Hanning Speke became the first European to see the much speculated Source of the River Nile.

Gandhi THE GREATEST RULER OF INDIA decided that his ashes be built in Uganda which was called the "pearl of Africa" due to its climate and the way people were behaving and if Amin hadn't expelled Indians Uganda would be the little Indian nation in Africa because they liked it, that's why after Amin going they came back to Uganda many who were nationals born here, but Uganda dont hate Indians they hate whta some Indians do which makes some Uganda hate them, pure postage is coming of the the largest city in Uganda.Kampala only has many people and tall new building but Jinja is large in size and organised and has many buildings more than kampala which r most of indian origin and Israel designs.

Dude why the double and triple posts with same message that is even not true?
For starters most people know who Gandhi was and they also know that he was NEVER THE RULER OF INDIA. After his cremation Gandhi's ashes were scattered at several places in the world including Jinja.

Jinja has been in a persistent state of decline since the 1970's that it has or may never recover from. Most industries have closed and no new ones opened, most buildings in the center of town are circa 1920's and are in a state or disrepair, what used to be good schools (Victoria Nile, Narambhai, Jinja SSS) have all gone to the dogs.
Like most places in Uganda the unemployment rate is extremely high and it does not look like things are or will get better anytime soon. I know this because I spent several years there while growing up and I consider Jinja my home town. My parents still live there and I visit at least once a year.

The only growth this town has seen in the last decade has been home construction and a few new hotels /resorts that most locals can not even afford to visit.

Now I am not trying to put Jinja down as i love that town and have so many fond memories growing up there and still have hope for it but embellishing the facts and burying our heads in the sand will not help matters.
