Today marks 48 years of independence for the Republic of Uganda , on the night of Oct 9 1962 the Union Jack was lowered and the Uganda Flag raised at Kololo Air Strip, Uganda was declared an independent and sovereign state Exactly 48 years ago .
alot has happened over the years with wars , poverty , disease, corruption and illiteracy taking their toll over the land but all is not lost as we say, for God and My country ,
and as our national anthem goes oh Uganda may God uphold thee , we lay our future in thy hands.
God have mercy! Happy Independence
