Uganda was a British colony until it gained independence in 1962. For several years after independence it’s postal affairs were managed communally with Kenya and Tanzania, and it used meter stamps inscribed with all three country names. Only a few postage meters were put into use with UGANDA alone as the country name. For stamps used before independence and for post-independence stamps inscribed KENYA, UGANDA and TANZANIA see EAST AFRICAN COMMUNITY. More stamp types than the two shown here are probably in use.
