General Idi Amin, diktator fra 25. januar 1971 til 13. april 1979.
'Uganda's strategic position along the central African Rift Valley, its favorable climate and the reliable rainfall around the Lake Victoria Basin made it attractive to African cultivators and herders as early as the fourth century B.C. When Arab traders moved inland from their enclaves along the Indian Ocean coast of East Africa and reached the interior of Uganda in the 1830s, they found several African kingdoms with well-developed political institutions dating back several centuries. These traders were followed in the 1860s by British explorers searching for the source of the Nile River. Protestant missionaries entered the country in 1877, followed by Catholic missionaries in 1879.
In 1888, control of the emerging British "sphere of interest" in East Africa was assigned by royal charter to the Imperial British East Africa Company, an arrangement strengthened in 1890 by an Anglo-German agreement confirming British dominance over Kenya and Uganda. The high cost of occupying the territory caused the company to withdraw in 1893, and its administrative functions were taken over by a British commissioner. In 1894, the Kingdom of Buganda was placed under a formal British protectorate. '

Britain granted internal self-government to Uganda in 1961, with the first elections held on March 1, 1961. Benedicto Kiwanuka of the Democratic Party became the first Chief Minister. Uganda maintained its Commonwealth membership. In succeeding years, supporters of a centralized state vied with those in favor of a loose federation and a strong role for tribally based local kingdoms. Political maneuvering climaxed in February 1966, when Prime Minister Milton Obote suspended the constitution, assumed all government powers, and removed the president and vice president. In September 1967, a new constitution proclaimed Uganda a republic, gave the president even greater powers, and abolished the traditional kingdoms.
On January 25, 1971, Obote's government was ousted in a military coup led by armed forces commander Idi Amin Dada. Amin declared himself president, dissolved the parliament, and amended the constitution to give himself absolute power. He gave himself the title "His Excellency President for Life Field Marshal Al Hadji Dr. Idi Amin, VC, DSO, MC, Conqueror of the British Empire."

Hanson, Holly Elisabeth: When the miles came : Land and social order in Buganda, 1850-1928.
- Gainesville, FL.: University of Florida,1997.
'Lush banana gardens support the dense population of the ridges on the northern edge of the great East African inland sea, where the Buganda kingdom emerged about five hundred years ago. People used this fertile land not only to produce the means of their subsistence, but also to define relationships between people in the kingdom. Ceremonies of "showing the land" cemented the connection of wives to husbands, of followers to chiefs, and of regional leaders to the kabaka, the king of Buganda. Neighbors and their children gathered to witness when a newcomer was "shown the land." A bark cloth tree was planted, intermediaries received gifts, and children planted bushes that indicated the borders of the granted land. In Buganda, the power to allocate land meant power to rule the people who cultivated the banana gardens on that land, and each person who had the power to grant land had a place in the complex web of authority. More important ceremonies, carried out by a designated messenger of the ruling kabaka, marked a kabaka's decision to give power—and land—to one subordinate and to take it away from someone else.'

The Uganda Protectorate: Attempt to Give Some Description of the Physical Geography, Botany, Zoology, Anthropology, Languages and History of the Territories under British Protection in East Central Africa. / : Sir Henry Hamilton Johnston. - New York: Dodd, Mead, 1904.
'This two-volume work by Sir Henry Hamilton (Harry) Johnston, a British explorer, writer, and colonial official who spent much of his career in Africa, is an encyclopedic compilation of information about Uganda, which became a British protectorate in 1894. Johnston was asked by the crown, in 1899, to spend two years in Uganda as a special commissioner, in order to establish civilian administration after a period of disastrous military rule. He concluded an agreement with the ruling chiefs of Buganda that helped bring stability to the country. During his term in office, Johnston continued his literary and scientific pursuits and spent eight months traveling to gather the information in these volumes.'
