The country I chose is Uganda.Uganda shares borders with Kenya,Rwanda,Tanzania,Sudan and The Democratic Republic Of The Congo.The Genocide in Uganda lasted from 1971-1985.Do to genocide over 300,00 people have died.the start of genocide in uganda is split between two regimes.The first was the Idi Amin’s regime "which murdered approximately 100,000 people from the Acholi and Lango tribes".(the combat genocide association)And the other was the Oboete regime,"which murdered roughly 500,000 of the Baganda people."(THE COMBAT GENOCIDE ASSOCIATION)."This was still the case in the years before the genocide. The economic situation worsened and the incumbent president, Juvenal Habyarimana, began losing popularity. At the same time, Tutsi refugees in Uganda - supported by some moderate Hutus - were forming the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF), led by Mr Kagame".(www.bbc.co.uk/news).The victims of the genocide were the Acholi and the Baganda people.the perpetrators were the Amin’s and the Oboete. the world was DEVASTATED by the genocide in uganda.Some facts about uganda: "1. around 50% of Uganda’s population survives on less than one dollar a day. 2. There are still untapped large crude oil and natural gas reserves in Uganda. 3. Uganda is a conservative society; it is generally unacceptable for women to wear skimpy clothing. 4. In Uganda, “skimpy” is defined as “not reaching your ankles.” 5. The average church service in Uganda lasts between 4 to 6 hours. 6. In Uganda, homosexuality is forbidden by law and is considered a punishable crime.The Internet connection in Uganda is very slow, with many Internet cafes running only off mobile phones. The main transportation vehicle in Uganda are bicycles. Uganda is one of the top countries in the world when it comes to alcohol consumption. Ugandans love meat stews, but the “meat” is not just the meat – it’s also the animal’s liver, stomach, intestines, tongue, etc. The Ugandan cook wastes nothing."
