My friend is from Uganda.

"English is the official language of Uganda, even though Luganda (the tribal language of the Baganda people) and Swahili are each spoken by a larger percentage of the population (Ladefoged et al., 25). This sort of scenario is a common a result of the tension between nationalist and nationist concerns, that is, the "conflict between the desire to communicate effectively with all parts of the country, and the need to economize in resources and build national unity" (Ladefoged et al., 18)." - from http://home.columbus.rr.com/sciences/uganda.htm

This sort of proves the point.
