An Insight into Uganda National Anthem


At a time when some national Anthems are coming under fire for being racists, anachronistic or even blood thirsty, the Uganda National Anthem remains a national hymn that evokes and eulogizes the history, traditions and struggles of its people. Adopted in 1962, with words and music by the late George Kakoma, the Uganda Anthem has stood the taste of time, with no dissenting voices. And on 9th October, the National Anthem will be the song to usher the country into its 54th Independence anniversary.
