The Anglican diocese of Uganda was formed in 1897 as a division of the diocese of Eastern Equatorial Africa. Prior to 1960, the diocese included all Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi, in what was then the country of Zaire. That year, the Diocese of Uganda was separated; one of the smaller new dioceses retained the same bishop but changed her name to the Diocese of Namirembe (so her bishop became Bishop of Namirembe). A year later, the new dioceses were erected into a Province, and the former Bishop of Uganda became Archbishop of Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi: As of June 2012, the Church of Uganda is divided into 34 dioceses and is under the Archbishop of Uganda.[1]
