Since the last quarter of 2015, Uganda's economy has had quite a number of activities which also saw an increase in the cost of living due to the volatility of the shilling against the dollar.

However, in the early year of 2016, Uganda saw activities such as presidential elections, uncertainties during the after month of election and the budget pressure.

These had high impact on investments leading to variations in the prices of different goods and services depending on the size, type and quality.

Below are some of the prices got during a survey done around Kampala city.
