The Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has announced plans to redesign the Independence Monument. The monument, located along Nile Avenue on Speke Road, is a symbol of Uganda’s independence, depicting a man holding a happy child.
During the handover of their contribution towards the Busoga Royal Wedding in Kampala, Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago emphasized the importance of restructuring the monument, considering Kampala as the main tourism attraction in Uganda.
Mr. Lukwago expressed the need to include the late First Vice President William Wilberforce Kadhumbula Nadiope III in the monument, recognizing his significant contribution to the country’s development.
The construction of this monument was financed by the British colonial government. It was the effort of artist and sculptor, Gregory Magoba.
