Ntinda is a location in northeastern Kampala, the capital city of Uganda.

Location[edit]

Ntinda lies in Nakawa Division, one of the five administrative divisions of Kampala. It is bordered by Kyambogo to the east, Nakawa to the south, Naguru to the west, Bukoto to the northwest, Kigoowa to the north, and Kiwaatule to the northeast. This location is approximately 7 kilometres (4 mi), by road, northeast of Kampala's central business district.[1] The coordinates of Ntinda are 0°21'18.0"N, 32°36'52.0"E (Latitude:0.355004; Longitude:32.614437).[2]

History[edit]

During the 1960s and 1970s, Ntinda was a small trading center with a few shops, a farmers market, and several housing estates for employees of the East African Railways.[3]

After the regime changes in the country in the 1980s, Ntinda became attractive to the well-to-do, and upscale residential neighborhoods began to spring up in the area. One such residential neighborhood had so many Uganda Cabinet Ministers taking up residence that it became known as "Ministers Village". Gilbert Bukenya, a former vice president of Uganda, owns a home in the area. Ntinda has an upscale shopping mall called "Capital Shoppers City", with a supermarket, banks, shoe stores, a restaurant, and a cake-making business. Surface and underground parking are available, along with armed security.[4][5]
