Uganda became an independent sovereign country in October 1962, at which time a British High Commission was established in Kampala. Britain broke off diplomatic relations with Uganda in July 1976, at which time the High Commission was closed down. A British interests section was maintained in the French embassy in Uganda until June 1977, when it too was closed.
