Pronunciation: /yo͞oˈɡandə/
A landlocked country in East Africa; population 32,369,600 (est. 2009); capital, Kampala; languages, English (official), Swahili, and other languages.

Ethnically and culturally diverse, Uganda became a British protectorate in 1894 and an independent Commonwealth of Nations state in 1962. The country was ruled 1971–79 by dictator Idi Amin, who came to power after an army coup. His overthrow, with Tanzanian military support, was followed by several years of conflict, partly resolved in 1986 by the formation of a government under President Yoweri Museveni.
