Kasumba Square Mall is located west of Kampala in Busega, Lubaga, Uganda, on the intersection of the Busega Roundabout and the Northern Bypass Highway, which was opened on October 1, 2009. Kasumba Eriabu founded the mall along with his family, who live in the diaspora and transformed a once swampy area into the first shopping mall in the area. Eriabu Kasumba was married to Margaret Lillan Kasumba and had nine children together. He was one of the first prominent businessmen to own a shop on Kampala Road and named it Kabale Busega Stores Ltd. When he was president in the 1960s, the former president Yusuf Lule encouraged and supported Africans to join businesses to compete with the Asians. He died on October 5, 2009, a few days after witnessing the long awaited opening of Northern Bypass Highway, and was buried close to his mall.
