ABSTRACT 

This study explored tourism as a correlate to cultural heritage in Kampala Central. This was after the realization that Kampala is a city of diverse cultural heritage that could be central in the transformation of tourism. The study specifically sought to achieve the following objectives: to establish the cultural heritage of Kampala Central; and to examine the role of cultural heritage in the transformation of tourism in Kampala Central. To achieve the stated objective, the study was guided by the following research questions: what is the cultural heritage of Kampala Central? What is the role of cultural heritage in the transformation of tourism in Kampala Central? The study design took the form of a case study of tourism as a correlate to cultural heritage in Kampala Central. The study also involved purposive sampling in which the data sought were qualitative. A sample of 50 respondents was selected for the study. The sample included opinion leaders, academics, politicians, religious leaders, traditionalists, city authorities, foreign toti~t~, traders, university students and indigenous people. Each category was represented by five respondents. The data were collected using interviews and observations for primary data and documents analysis for secondary data. The analysis of the data generated by the interviews and observations involved a phenomenological approach by emphasizing content analysis and deep understanding of the observed phenomena and views of the participants, literal description and narration of the emerging issues out of which authentic conclusions were made. During the interviews and observations, the researcher noted down in his diary the relevant issues (epThod~s, situations, events or instances) for accurate reporting. The main themes that emerged from the field notes and interviews were noted down.The study found out that the cultural diversity of Kampala Central encompasses the following aspects: knowledge, architecture, art, laws, customs, literature, music, language, literature, amenities, history and customs. Further, the study revealed that there are several ways through which culture transforms tourism (e.g., by generating employment, unity in diversity, tourism, entertainment, mobilization of the masses and self-actualization).The study concludes by noting that little is known about what &iliiiral diversity is. This was due to the lack of a clear meaning of the term. Thus, the cultural heritage of Kampala Central remains largely unknown even when it is readily available due to lack of publicity, ignorance or failure to realize what the country’s heritage is. Further, the study concludes by noting that the role of cultural heritage in the transformation in Kampala Central is largely informal or society is yet to appreciate it (e.g., many of the cultural sites, historical ix buildings and monuments are likely to decay due to lack of conservation and uncontrolled urban developments that do not respect the city’s heritage). The political squabbles, corruption and bureaucracy of the city managers will not help much. This will remain the case not until those who wield power and influence realize the potentials of culture and what culture means. The study recommends the reinvigoration of interest into what cultural heritage is since it is an important ingredient in the country’s tourism. The study, recommends the need for cultural awakening and redefining what culture is by incorporating various stake holders such as the government, city authorities, traditionalists, academics, property owners, business community and the general public on board so as to widen the benefits from cultural heritage.
