Andrew Kayiira - The UNLF Factor

The UNLF Factor

The Uganda National Liberation Front was a political group formed by exiled Ugandans opposed to the rule of Idi Amin. It worked alongside the Uganda National Liberation Army (UNLA) that acted as a sister wing in liberating Uganda from the alleged autocratic leadership of Idi Amin Dada. It fought alongside Tanzanian forces in the Uganda-Tanzania War that led to the overthrow of Idi Amin's regime.

Being a product of Ugandan exiles the UNLF undertook operation and East African recognition from 24 to 26 March 1979 in Moshi, northern Tanzania under the Moshi Conference. The Front was represented by 28 groups. They included the Uganda Freedom Union (UFU) that was led by Andrew Kayiira, Godfrey Binaisa and Olara Otunnu. The others included FRONASA led by Yoweri Museveni, Kikosi Maalum led by Milton Obote, and Save Uganda Movement led by Akena p'Ojok, William Omaria and Ateker Ejalu.

Famous quotes containing the word factor:

    Children of the middle years do not do their learning unaffected by attendant feelings of interest, boredom, success, failure, chagrin, joy, humiliation, pleasure, distress and delight. They are whole children responding in a total way, and what they feel is a constant factor that can be constructive or destructive in any learning situation.
    Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)
