Different from the larger region of Buganda, Uganda was made a British protectorate in 1894 and Buganda was made a constitutional monarchy in 1900. Uganda became independent in 1962 and it became a republic with Milton Obote as prime minister and Buganda's King Mutesa as president in 1963. It was in 1966 that Buganda's autonomy ended and Milton Obote took over as president.
