History of the Ugandan Mission.

The Ugandan Mission opened in Kampala in August 1989 with three South African staff members. By April 1990, the number had grown to 60 active cadres, and the office was struggling to find accommodation for all. Only two years later, after the breakup of the Apartheid regime, the Uganda mission began to pack to return to South Africa.

Scope and Content Note

The records of the Uganda Mission are comprised of three series: Subject FilesCorrespondence, and Photographs


The Subject Files series spans the years 1989-1994, with the exception of a photocopy of a 1957 publication regarding the 1956 Treason Trial and a few documents from the 1980s. The series consists primarily of topical files regarding South Africa and the ANC in general, and some on the Uganda Mission in particular. The majority of the materials consist of minutes, papers, speeches and statements, with proceedings and reports from numerous conferences also represented


The Correspondence series spans the years 1989-1994 and consists of both incoming and outgoing correspondence of the Uganda Mission with other departments of the ANC, as well as other organisations, embassies and foreign ministries. These correspondences relate to a variety of topics, including requests for aid, diplomacy, arrangements for visits to and from Uganda, education and training of cadres in Uganda, and the representation of women in the Umkhonto we Sizwe and decision-making bodies of the ANC.

The Photographs series are contained in box 9 and have been arranged in 9 folders. The series reflects activities of the ANC members and those of the locals in solidarity with the struggling people of South Africa.




These additional boxes are from the Uganda collection that was discovered later. These boxes are comprised of 4 series namely: i) Correspondence, box 1-3; ii) Financial Documents, boxes 4-6; iii) Reports, boxes 7-9; iv) Statements/minutes, box 10.
