Interesting Facts About Uganda

Uganda flagBackground: The colonial boundaries created by Britain to delimit Uganda grouped together a wide range of ethnic groups with different political systems and cultures. These differences prevented the establishment of a working political community after independence was achieved in 1962.

The dictatorial regime of Idi AMIN (1971-79) was responsible for the deaths of some 300,000 opponents; guerrilla war and human rights abuses under Milton OBOTE (1980-85) claimed at least another 100,000 lives. The rule of Yoweri MUSEVENI since 1986 has brought relative stability and economic growth to Uganda. A constitutional referendum in 2005 cancelled a 19-year ban on multi-party politics.

    I have been invited by someone in Uganda to come and minister there. I was told it would be best to come with a team. I was wanting to know if I could come with an Aglow team. I am new at this, not sure if I am even asking this correctly. Please let me know what I need to do and how to go about it. Thank you, God bless.
