KISENYI parish may soon be the proud owner of a community centre wholly owned by the local community. Construction of the Kisenyi I Community Centre has been completed.

The other community centre in Kampala is owned by the Catholic parish in Mulago. Initially, there was a small wooden unrefurbished structure at the spot, with a capacity of less than 50 people.

The area councillor, Salim Uhuru, working with the area LC1 officials, took the proposal for a permanent building to the Central Division. Howeve,r before he got a reply, Uhuru used his money to get the work started.

“I bought materials in order to have something on site,” says Uhuru. Other contributions came from Godfrey Nyakana, the division chairman; Arhad a businessman and Godfrey Ntagada, among others. The Central Division later came in and completed the building.
Other members of the community provided labour, like lifting bricks and sand.

Uhuru says: “The centre is not just for community meetings, it will also be a source of income for the parish.”
He says people holding meetings and functions will pay a fee.

The hall can accommodate 150 people.
