Uganda is a landlocked East African country, bordered by Kenya, South Sudan, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Tanzania. Since the fall of former dictator Idi Amin, Uganda has seen periods of civil war and internal violence, though the situation has somewhat stabilised in recent years. The current president has ruled since 1986 and though elections are now held, their conduct has been criticised. The legacy of conflict in the north of the country is still felt, with extensive reported abuses by both the rebel Lord's Resistance Army and the Ugandan military, alongside nationwide problems of prejudice, violence and threats of execution against sexual minorities.
