Abstract:In rural Buganda, in such places as Bugerere, party political activity reached a crescendo in the months before the May 1966 crisis and was then abruptly extinguished. During the heyday of politics there was a clear distinction in the focus of party activity; in the commercial townships on the main road through Bugerere its intensity was immediately obvious, whereas in the farming villages it was scarcely in evidence. The reason for this discrimination: the unusual economic and demographic circumstances of Bugerere. This is discussed in: Background to immigration in Bugerere - Party politics and the crisis of June 1966 - Immigration and village organisation - Integration and the attraction of the parties.
