Shakib Nsubuga, Lamudi Uganda Country Manager stated: “In 2013, according to the World Bank there were 36.4 million people in Uganda and figures show that is further increasing.

“A service of this type is needed to further support Uganda’s fast growing real estate market especially in the big cities like Kampala, Entebbe, Jinja and surrounding areas.

“Currently, there is an increased demand for more affordable housing, with only a fraction being currently met. 

“This remarkable growth is due to an increase in local and foreign investment, population growth (2.89%), an emerging middle class, and increased diaspora property investment.”
