The Republic of Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa. The UK placed the territory under a charter of the Imperial British East Africa Company in 1888, and much of it become a British protectorate in 1894. Several adjoining areas were subsequently added, the country reaching its current extent in 1914 when it became the Protectorate of Uganda. Independence was granted in 1962. In 1963, the country adopted a constitution similar to that of an elected monarchy. However, in 1967 it adopted a republican constitution and became the Republic of Uganda.
