KAMPALA, UGANDA: Property worth millions of shillings have been destroyed in a Sunday afternoon fire outbreak reported at the Uganda National Cultural Centre also known as the National Theatre in Kampala.
The fire outbreak is said to have started from the kiosks near the lower gate at Dewinton Road in Kampala. Eyewitnesses at the time of the incident allege that the fire might have been caused by someone who was welding at one of the kiosks.
By press time, Police had reached the scene, and investigations to establish the cause of the fire were underway.
Located in the capital, Kampala, the National Theatre is a piano-shaped building that also houses the Nommo Gallery. The 60-year-old building will be pulled down and replaced with a 36-story, state-of-the-art, multi-purpose complex as part of new redevelopment plans.
