Kibuye is an area within the city of Kampala, Uganda's capital.


Kibuye is bordered by Katwe to the north, Nsambya to the east, Makindye to the south, Ndeeba to the west, and Mengo to the northwest. This location is approximately 4 kilometres (2.5 mi), by road, from Kampala's central business district.[1] The coordinates of Kibuye are 0°17'37.0"N, 32°34'23.0"E (Latitude:0.293611; Longitude:32.573056).[2]


Kibuye is a low-income residential area, with emphasis on entertainment. Due to its proximity to the slum in Katwe and the business suburbs of Ndeeba and Makindye, Kibuye is a combination of these environments. There are numerous bars, pubs and nightclubs clustered in a fairly confined area of the city. As is the case with neighboring Katwe, Kibuye has a high crime rate.[3]
