Ambassador H.E. Julius Peter Moto [1]

The High Commission of Uganda in London is the diplomatic mission of Uganda in the United Kingdom.[2] It is located in Uganda House, next to Admiralty Arch on Trafalgar Square; it shares the building with the Embassy of Burundi.[2]

In 2011 a protest was held outside by High Commission by diaspora Ugandans opposed to the Presidency of Yoweri Museveni.[3] and also in 2012 by people opposed to the Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Bill.[4]

In 2012 it was revealed that two staff at the High Commission were being investigated for suspected smuggling and tax evasion.[5]
