Nice new photos! Kampala doesn't look too bad for an African capital. I've also found that Uganda is ranked as a medium development country. Not a bad start!

Its very impressive considering they had to do alot of rebuilding after the wars ended in 1986. Kampala's skyline literally sprouted in the late nineties when the country was (and still is) experiencing robust economic growth. But I guess it will see phenominal growth in its skyline in the coming months. About four new hotels are under construction in the city centre with some being more than 20 storeys high. This is to cater for the coming commonwealth heads of government meeting (CHOGM) this year.

The city is also currently undergoing a major road upgrade with a new by-pass highway being built.

Uganda has been hailed as one of Africas success stories. They were among the continents poorest people a few decades ago but have risen up from the ashes of war. Now that the country has discovered oil deposits, its only a matter of time before it gives some African powerhouses a run for their money.

The Serana Hotel in Kampala is brilliant, it is simply the Africa of my dreams, a serene hotel built around African themes with African art and African furniture all in a first world and clean setting!:cheers:

As for the Mosque, This Mr Colonel Khadafi from Lybia is the devil in disguise, what is his aim in Africa? He plays "sugar Daddy" in poor(er) african states with his petro-billions ...once he is gone, the world can breathe freely.
