As is the case with the other countries that linguists have discussed under thename East Africa, i.e. Kenya, Tanzania, Burundi and Rwanda, English cameto the area that makes up Uganda today relatively late. This chapter traces thehistory of English in the country. It describes where speakers of English initiallycame from and who the users of English have been until today to provide abasis for a full appreciation of the sociolinguistics of present-day Uganda andof the differences from its East African neighbours Kenya and Tanzania. It willalso discuss how the protectorate status, the lack of a settler strand, and the circumstancesof the 1960s, 70s and 80s set Uganda apart from more prototypicalpostcolonial countries and seem to provide challenges to existing models.
