Like Tanzania relocated its capital city from Dares Salaam to Dodoma, the republic of Uganda is also planning to relocate its capital city from Kampala to Nakasongola.
Sources in government have told us that the ministers behind the idea of relocating the capital city to Nakasongola have already sold the idea to president Museveni who also seems to be supportive of the idea.
We are told some of the ministers behind the idea of relocating the capital city are Justice Minister Maj. Gen. Kahinda Otafiire and state minister for transport Stephen Cheborot.
There are also proposals that the capital should be relocated to Mbarara as the late former president of Uganda Milton Obote had planned in the past. The ministers behind the proposal argue that relocating the capital city will decongest Kampala.
