Before gaining independence, Uganda had been a British protectorate since 1894, with the UK exercising administrative control over the territory. Uganda finally achieved independence on October 9, 1962, although its post-independence history has been marked by significant events, including periods of turmoil such as the eight-year military dictatorship led by Idi Amin.
