Najjanankumbi is a location in the city of Kampala, Uganda's capital.

Location

Najjanankumbi is located on the southern edge of the city of Kampala. It is bordered by Kibuye to the north, Lukuli to the east, Makindye to the southeast, Lubowa to the south, Kabowa to the west and Ndeeba to the northwest. The coordinates of Najjanankumbi are:00 16 30N, 32 34 12E (Latitude:0.2750; Longitude:32.5700). This location is situated approximately 5 kilometres (3.1 mi), by road, south of the central business district of Kampala.[1]

Overview

Najjanankumbi is a low-income residential and business location in Uganda's capital city. Numerous shops, restaurants and bars compete for space with small one to two roomed rental residencies. As is usual in low-income areas of most cities, crime is high in this part of Kampala.[2] Medical services in this area of the city are scarce. NGOs help fill the gap by providing free services to the area residents.[3]

Closer to the Entebbe-Kampala Highway, the businesses and residences are respectable, falling in value, as one ventures away from the highway. The Forum for Democratic Change, the main Ugandan opposition political party, maintains their headquarters at Najjanankumbi.[4]
