Dinesh Pattni (Facebook) “Doubt there were many ( if any at all ) Japanese cars in Uganda during 1960. Looks much later, but pre-1971 when luminous number plates were made mandatory.”

Mwebaza Ivan (Facebook), “My interest is drawn to the two young adult girls in the left foreground. They are smart, appear energetic, serious, confident ,and you deduce from their over all appearance that they are happy, hopeful and very free and liberated. One even has a book!! So I can safely assume they are educated as well!!!. Mind you that was in 60s or 70s, well before the ’86 invasion that claim to have liberated the women.”
