CCFU Executive Director, Emily Drani noted that the map includes 51 buildings and sites in Kampala, that were constructed before 1969 reflecting Uganda’s socio-cultural, religious, political and economic history.

“Through this initiative, it is anticipated that buildings and sites of cultural and historical significance in Kampala will be better known and preserved by policy makers, owners of these properties and the general public,” Drani noted.

Drani said that Uganda will be able to offer an enhanced tourism experience, for local and international tourists, who will discover the history of religions, cultures, education, health and political systems in Uganda.

She added that CCFU in partnership with relevant stake holders plans to advocate for the establishment of legal instruments to identify, list and protect historical properties and to encourage cultural activists and creative artists to use their skills to promote historical buildings.

KCCA Executive Director, Jennifer Musisi lauded CCFU for such an initiative and vowed to offer support and participate in protection, conservation and preservation of historical building within the city.

Musisi observed that whereas most historical buildings are under individual ownership and are not taken care of, the authority is committed to helping the owners preserve such buildings.

The map was launched by the Uganda Tourism Board Chairperson, James Tumusiime in company of the Ambassador of Ireland Mr. Donal Cronin.
