A Brief Political History of Uganda.. Independence through the 1960s.. Uganda gained her independence on October 9th 1962.. Since 1894 she was a British protectorate..  ...   considered rigged.. For a second time, Obote became President of Uganda.. During Obote's second tenure as president, Ugandans went through a very trying period.. Insecurity, fuelled by the government's own security organs as well as an ongoing liberation.. struggle devastated the country.. An estimated 500,000 Ugandans lost their lives in just 5 years of.. Obote's reign.. The economy was shattered and so was the people's faith in government.. NRA liberation struggle.. In direct protest against the marred elections of 1980, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, then Vice.. Chairman of the Military Commission and President of the Uganda Patriotic Movement,.. launched a liberation struggle.. It was on February 6th, 1981.. and.. with only 26 compatriots.. organized under the banner of the National Resistance Army (NRA) that the war of liberation.. started.. As the NRA made staggering advances towards Kampala, having already cut the country off into.. two different administrative zones, elements of the UNLA on July 26th 1985 ousted Obote in a.. bid to find better negotiating ground.. The Military Junta of Generals Bazilio and Tito Okello.. replaced Obote II's government.. By February 26th 1986 the "Okellos Junta" had fallen and shortly after the entire country was.. under control of the NRA.. The NRA's struggle was unique in that, for the first time in post-colonial Africa, a home grown.. insurgency, with no rear bases in a neighboring country and little external support, was.. ultimately successful.. It was essentially an uprising of oppressed Ugandan citizens.. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni was sworn in as the President of the Republic of Uganda.. The audious.. task of rebuilding the entire country and its human fabric from scratch began.. To enable this task,.. political parties were suspended and Uganda was governed by an all-inclusive Movement.. system.. A lot was to be achieved over the next eight to ten years.. The NRA/M however continued to face the challenge of reactionary UNLA forces especially in.. the northern part of the country.. The Movement System of Government.. In 1995, a new constitution was promulgated creating a non-party all inclusive Movement.. System of government.. Under this system, political parties remained in abeyance.. Elections to.. most political offices was by universal suffrage.. Marginalised groups like the women, the.. disabled, the youth and workers were given special slots on all administrative units of.. Government.. The military was also given representation in parliament.. The aspect of keeping.. this system was to be reviewed by referendum every 4 years.. General elections were held in 1996 under the Movement System and Yoweri Museveni was.. returned as President of Uganda.. By this election, he became the very first Ugandan to be.. directly elected to the post by universal suffrage.. In 2001, he was again returned by popular.. mandate to the Office of President.. Return to Multi Party Politics.. In July 2005 a national referendum was held in which the people of Uganda resolved to return to.. multi-party politics.. The result of the referendum in effect marked an end to the Movement.. On February 23rd 2006, multi-party elections were held for both the.. office of president and for parliament.. President Yoweri Museveni of the National Resistance.. Movement (NRM) won the presidential elections and the NRM took the highest number of seats.. in parliament.. Overview of the Economy.. 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.. Coffee accounts for the bulk of export revenues.. The economic reforms implemented by the present government in Uganda since.. 1987, coupled with political stability, have contributed to economic growth.. rates averaging 6% per annum in the last decade.. This has made Uganda one of.. the fastest growing countries in Africa.. Inflation is under control and has.. been maintained below 10% per annum for the last four years.. Most economic.. activities are fully liberalized and open to foreign investment.. There are.. no restrictions to 100% foreign ownership of investments and no barriers to.. remittance of dividends.. The Uganda's shilling is fully convertible and has remained stable over the.. last years.. The foreign exchange market is now wholly liberalized following.. a move by government, effective July 1997 to liberalize capital account.. transactions.. Uganda is now one of about only five countries in the whole of.. Africa that have no restrictions on capital amount transfers.. Within Africa.. and the merging markets, Uganda enjoys a high status with donors and.. lenders.. Taxes on imports and locally manufactured goods continue to fall in line.. with the Government's commitment to support the growth of the manufacturing.. sector.. In general, the environment for private sector investment has.. improved significantly with the formal economy growing in importance.. As.. well as pure growth, Uganda is seeing a shift from the firmly agricultural.. based economy of 1986 towards construction manufacturing and regional.. trade/distribution..
