TANZANIA

Tanzania, republic in East Africa, on the Indian Ocean. A diverse country in which close to 100 different languages are spoken, Tanzania was formed by the federation of the nations of Tanganyika and Zanzibar in 1964. The country’s name is a combination of the first syllables of the component territories’ names. Tanzania is bounded on the north by Kenya and Uganda; on the east by the Indian Ocean; on the south by Mozambique, Malawi and Zambia; and on the west by the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Burundi and Rwanda. The country includes the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba, and other offshore islands in the Indian ocean. The total area of Tanzania is 945,100 sq km (364, 900 sq mi). Dar es Salaam is the executive capital and largest city; the smaller city of Dodoma is now the legislative centre of Tanzania and has been designated as the eventual capital.

UGANDA

Uganda, landlocked country on the equator in East Africa. The country contains a varied landscape of Savanna, dense forests, and tall mountains, as well as almost half of Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa, and the primary source of the Nile River. Uganda is an ethnically diversee nation with a deeply ingrained intellectual and artistic culture. Poor but developing, Uganda’s economy is predominantly agricultural. Uganda was the site of several powerful kingdoms, most notably Buganda and Bunyoro, before the arrival of European colonists in the late 19th century. Uganda became a British protectorate in 1894, and its present borders were established in 1926. It gained in 1980s dependence from British rule in 1962. In the 1970s and early 1980s the nation suffered two bloody dictatorial regimes, under Idi Amin and Milton Obote, and two wars. In 1986 Uganda came under the control of pragmatic leader Yoweri Museveni, who introduced democratic and economic reforms. Kampala is Uganda’s capital and largest city.
