History is called Buganda. In 1000 AD, a kingdom was established in the Buganda region in southern Uganda. In the mid-nineteenth century, with the successive entry of Arab merchants and British and German colonialists, successive years of war between Protestantism, Catholicism and Islam broke out in the Kingdom of Buganda, and the kingdom quickly declined. In 1890, Britain and Germany signed an agreement to carve up East Africa, and Buganda was classified as a British sphere of influence. In June 1894, Britain declared Buganda as its "protector nation." In 1896, the British extended the scope of the "protection nation" to the entire territory of Uganda, and set up a governor in Uganda in 1907. On October 9, 1962, Uganda declared its independence, retained Buganda and other four autonomous kingdoms, established the Uganda Federation, and remained in the Commonwealth. In October 1963, Uzbekistan amended the constitution and abolished the British governor in Uzbekistan. In September 1967, Uganda abolished the feudal kingdom and federal system and established the Republic of Uganda.
