Uganda Flag Dominated In Kololo Stadium During Independence Celebration Day (Photos)

As Uganda marks 60 years of independence today, what are some of the country's remarkable achievements the population ought to celebrate.

In Uganda we have had fights with political actors over value addition. Everything is got from outside yet the raw materials are available. At least we have started producing our own posho, processed milk, fertilisers, and some textiles ~ President Museveni 

President William Ruto during Uganda's 60th Independence Day celebrations at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds in Kampala said that the EAC will realize its potential if it eliminates barriers to free movement of people, goods and services.

Happy Independence Day Uganda! We have experienced 60 years of challenges, but it's our right to self rule. Achievements need to be celebrated; mistakes ought to be corrected. Going forward we should rebuild/ strengthen institutions of state; enforce the rule of law and democracy; and improve the socio-economic wellbeing of the ordinary person. We need to respect/listen to each other more. CPM-Charles.

Uganda was ruled by the British beginning in the late 1800s and it gained independence on October 9th, 1962 when the Union Jack flag was lowered down and the treasured Black-Yellow-Red national flag majestically raised up.

Before independence, Uganda was ruled from London, with British governors appointed by the Queen’s government.But after 1962, it saw self-government based in Kampala and by run Ugandans.
