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

Location[edit]

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]

Overview[edit]

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]
