Kampala Central Mosque

Uganda / Africa

The Uganda National Mosque is a mosque located in the Old Kampala area. Completed in 2006, it seats up to 15,000 worshipers and can hold another 1,100 in the gallery, while the terrace will cater for another 3,500.  Colonel Muammar Gaddafi of Libya (1942-2011) commissioned the mosque as a gift to Uganda for the benefit of the Muslim population.  Uganda has many mosques but this is the largest. The completed mosque was officially opened in June 2007 under the name Gaddafi National Mosque and housed the head offices of the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council. It was renamed ‘Uganda National Mosque’ in 2013 following the death of Colonel Gaddafi as the new Libyan administration was ‘reluctant to rehabilitate the mosque under the old name.’
