In his book My African Journey (1908), Sir Winston Churchill one of the greatest statesmen of the 20th century wrote “The Kingdom of Uganda is a fairy tale. The scenery is different, the climate is different and most of all, the people are different from anything elsewhere to be seen in the whole range of Africa…what message I bring back…concentrate upon Uganda.”
Uganda is an incredibly breathtaking host of treasured people comprising of a range of ethnic groups. The Bantu speaking people dominate most of the East, Central and Southern Uganda. In the Greater North live the Luo and Langi, to the Northeast are the Itesot and Karimojong who speak a Nilotc language. A few pygmies known as the Batwa live isolated in the rain forests of Western Uganda. Luganda is the commonest language; Swahili is trade language in the East African region and English the official language.
