One could argue that informal settlements are a direct, progressional and improvised response of citizens to their city and their needs. Why they are they surpressed, underserved and kept off important official records? Impossible to ignore. Katanga is home to a wide range of people whose need for real infrastructure continue to grow.
Some of our graffiti crew artists have been working with Katanga to understand how they want to see their neighborhood grow, and how beautification of their places has immediate impact on the quality of their lives. Katanga itself is located between Mulago Hospital and Makerere University, both who claim that this huge swampy chunk of land is theirs, turning it effectively into no-man’s land.
