Owino market fire

Don't know if you have been reading the Ugandan papers lately but there has been a dispute about the site near Nakivubo stadium that was proposed for a new bus park. Well surprise surprise Owino market has burnt down in dodgy circumstances next to the bus park site.

Great quote from a fireman who turned up

“They came late at the scene and parked the fire tender claiming that they were waiting for an order from their bosses to extinguish the fire,” Mr Abubaker Mulinde, a local councillor who lost four stalls in the market, said.
