Uganda adopts Swahili as second official language

Hon Chris Baryomunsi, the Minister of Information, Communication, Technology and National Guidance told reporters that the cabinet on Monday approved the implementation of a directive by the 21st East African Community (EAC) summit that Kiswahili be adopted as an official language of the community.

Uganda now therefore has two official languages, Kiswahili and English.

The EAC brings together seven member countries including Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan.

Baryomunsi also added that Cabinet also directed that the teaching of the Kiswahili language in primary amd secondary schools should be made compulsory and examinable.
