Prince Badru Kakungulu, a member of the Buganda Royal Family owned most of the hill, before he donated it to the Ugandan Moselem community. That land today houses the Kibuli Mosque, Kibuli Secondary School, Kibuli Hospital and Kibuli Teacher Training College. The hill also accommodates a police training school and a teacher training college. At the base of the hill, on the eastern side of Kibuli, is the neighborhood called Namuwongo, the location of the old Industrial Area of the city and the oil depots of three major oil companies; Shell, Total, and Caltex.[1]
