Uganda-

The Republic of Uganda is locatedin East Africa, bordered in the north by Sudan, to the east by Kenya, by the Democratic Republic of Congo in the west, Rwanda in the southwest and Tanzania to the south.

The southern part of the country includes a largel portion of Lake Victoria, within which it shares borders with Tanzania and Kenya.

Although landlocked, Uganda has access to several large water bodies, including Lake Victoria, Lake Albert, Lake Kyoga and Lake Edward.

Uganda has substantial natural resources, including fertile soils, regular rainfall, and sizable mineral deposits of copper and cobalt. Agriculture is the most important sector of the economy, employing over 80% of the work force, with coffee accounting for the bulk of export revenues. Since 1986, the government - with the support of foreign countries and international agencies - has acted to rehabilitate an economy decimated during the regime of Idi Amin and subsequent civil war.

Uganda is home to many different ethnic groups, none of whom form a majority of the population. Around forty different languages are regularly and currently in use in the country. English became the official language of Uganda after independence.
