The Fire brigade is trying to put out a fire at one of the structures, at Kasubi Tombs
In a social media video, the Fire brigade is seen trying to put out a fire at one of the structures, at Kasubi Tombs.
The Kasubi Tombs in Kampala, is the site of the burial grounds for four Kabakas (kings of Buganda) and other members of the Baganda royal family.
As a result, the site remains an important spiritual and political site for the Baganda people, as well as an important example of traditional architecture.
It became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in December 2001, when it was described as “one of the most remarkable buildings using purely vegetal materials in the entire region of sub-Saharan Africa”.
