Why you should always shop online in Uganda

The first time I went for shopping in Kampala city, it was really frustrating. I wanted new trending clothes. I moved shop to shop looking for clothes, started sweating and eventually got tired. As I almost went back home, I landed on a boutique , popped it in and started checking out the new clothes they had. I could not find what I wanted, so I just picked up a few clothes and went back home. Imagine after spending to and from transport and did not get what I want. If you are reading this guide, this is not what you should pass through.
