Gahanga - a City Master Plan Coming to Life

By James Karuhanga

One of Kigali's suburbs, Gahanga which is located about 20 kilometers from the city centre, is gradually developing into a unique city of the future.

Strategically located at one of the entrances of Kigali, Gahanga is well connected with the city centre as well as Bugesera International Airport, which is under construction.

Plans are in motion to turn the small trading centre into a modern business district that will, arguably, be the economic driver for the region. It is projected to be a hub for retail, commerce, sports and financial services.
