During the 1960s and 1970s, Ntinda was a small trading center with a few shops, a farmers market and several housing estates for employees of the East African Railways. A famous General Medical Practitioner, Dr. David N. Kiremerwa, one of East Africa's first medical doctors, had an office in the trading center. His legacy continues today, through his three physician grand children; brother and sister team: Dr. Brett Kintu, a Paediatrician in the United Kingdom, and Dr. Natasha Nakimera, a Public Health Specialist in Uganda, plus their cousin Dr. Fred Magezi, an Infectious Disease Specialist in the UK.
After the regime changes in the country in the 1980s, Ntinda became attractive to the well-to-do and upscale residential neighborhoods began to spring up in the area. One such residential neighborhood had so many Uganda Cabinet Ministers taking up residence that it became known as Ministers Village. Professor Gilbert Bukenya Balibaseka, the former Vice President of Uganda owns a home in the area. Ntinda has an upscale shopping mall called Capital Shoppers City, with a supermarket, banks, shoe stores, a restaurant and a cake-making business. Surface and underground parking are available, along with armed security.
