Living in Uganda
Uganda is a land-locked country in Central Africa. It is bordered by South Sudan to the north, Kenya to the east, Rwanda and Tanzania to the south, and the Democratic Republic of Congo to the west. Much of Uganda’s south-eastern territory is covered by the vast Lake Victoria; its capital city, Kampala, is situated on the shoreline of the lake. The current President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, has been in power since 1986; the anti-homosexuality laws that he has introduced in recent years have led to international condemnation, and significant investors in the country have threatened to stop funding if they continue. Corruption is a big issue that is hindering the country’s development. Uganda’s main exports are coffee, tobacco, radio equipment, fish, and oil. However, the wealth this brings in does not appear to reach the poorest in the population, and as a result Uganda continues to have one of the world’s highest poverty rates, particularly in rural areas in which the vast majority of Ugandans live. 85% of Ugandan are Christian, with most of the remaining 15% comprising an Islamic minority. Interestingly, Uganda is attempting to develop a film industry, and is planning legislation to increase its exposure within the country, which could lead to a new source of income for the country as well as a new cultural export.
