Kamwookya is a mixed residential and commercial area of the city, with a large number of small Information Technology (IT) businesses. Kamwookya is also the location of a central market, restaurants, shops, dry-cleaners and sports bars, many of them, upscale. Closer to the city center, one can find several foreign embassies, government buildings and an upscale shopping mall. (See Points of interest below:).

In the northern portion of Kamwookya, between the Kampala Northern Bypass Highway and Kira Road, the neighborhood is a densely packed slum, with poorly constructed housing units, poor drainage and rudimentary sanitary infrastructure, with attendant public health challenges.[3]
