Mutundwe is a neighborhood in the city of Kampala, Uganda's capital. The name also refers to Mutundwe Hill, where the neighborhood is located.

Location[edit]

Mutundwe is located on the southwestern edge of the city of Kampala. It is bordered by Lungujja to the north, Lubaga to the northeast, Ndeeba and Kabowa to the east, Wankulukuku to the southeast, Kitebi to the south, Kabojja to the west, and Nateete to the northwest. The coordinates of Nateete are 0°16'58.0"N 32°32'03.0"E (Latitude:0.282778; Longitude:32.534167).[1] The road distance between Kampala's central business district and Mutundwe is approximately 6.5 kilometres (4.0 mi).[2]

Overview[edit]

Mutundwe is primarily a middle-class residential neighborhood.[citation needed] During the first decade of the 21st century, however, educational institutions such as the Mutundwe Campus of Kampala University have been added to the neighborhood.

The Mutundwe Power Station, a 50 megawatt thermal power plant, was dismantled in 2011, but the Mutundwe Electricity Sub-Station, where the power plant was located, still exists. This sub-station is a major transit point for power evacuated from the hydropower stations along the Nile River, before it is transmitted to Entebbe,[3] Masaka, and the Western Region of Uganda [4]

The neighborhood sits on the slopes of Mutundwe Hill, which rises to an elevation of 1,300 metres (4,300 ft) above sea level.[citation needed]

Mutundwe is in the Lubaga Division, one of the five administrative divisions of Kampala, Uganda's capital city.[5]
