Why Uganda is known as The Pearl Of Africa can be traced through quoting Winston S. Churchhill from his book, My African Journey.
My journey is at an end, the tale is told and the reader who has followed faithfully and so far has a right to ask what message I bring back. It can be stated in three words Concentrate upon Uganda!
But it is alive by itself, it is vital and in my view, in spite of its insects and its diseases, it ought in the course of time to become the most prosperous of all our East and Central African possessions and perhaps the financial driving wheel of all this part of the world!
My counsel plainly is; Concentrate upon Uganda! Nowhere else in Africa will a little money go so far. Nowhere else will the results be more brilliant, more substantial or more rapidly realized.
Uganda is from end to end one beautiful garden, where the staple food of the people grows almost without labour. Does it not sound like a paradise on Earth?
It is the Pearl Of Africa.
