Uganda is a multi-lingual country with approximately 40 different languages spoken. Despite being the best English-speaking country in Africa (according to World Linguistic Society), spoken English in Uganda is in most times a fusion of the local languages and English. This may make it difficult to understand for a non-native. The transcription industry in East Africa is still very small.
