Hi,

what could be the monthly avg cost in kampala. please help me out
ans i also want to know abt the group MFI
#Andrew on Jan 06, 2014 :
this figures are wrong - rent is high in Bugolobi, Mutungo, Ntinda, Bukoto, Lubowa rent for 2 bedroom apartments is $350 to $500 depending on the finishing, security, approximate to shopping centers and neighborhood. 3 bedrooms are $600 to $1500 in this areas.
#abs on Nov 22, 2013 :
anonymous 2 thanks for the more realistic figures!!!
#Anonymous 2 on Jan 09, 2013 :
These estimates are SO OFF in some (most) cases! Apartment in central Kampala are NOT normally that expensive. I pay about $300 per month for a nice 3 apt fairly central in Kampala and this is still the Muzungu price. Private hire taxi, waiting for one hour costs like maybe $2...and a private taxi anywhere within the city (not outskirts) shouldn't be more than $5-6 (including "start fee". 12 eggs are $0.5 in the markets. I guess if the only people contributing to these assessments are UN or embassy workers who accept near infinite rents and only do groceries at shoprite the estimates come out accordingly.

tis quiet embarrasing what we read in the news qoutings from the OBSERVER OF 21/NOVEMBER/2012. SAYS THAT"most ugandans cant afford 3meals a day" yet there are individuals who fail to spend millions a day, they just wish of any way to spend extravagantly. am trying to carry out my research bassing on the fact that most people in this country cant afford threee meals a day, my study area is kampala.i wish to verify this claim,my topic is prices and cost of living in kampala
