Most Ugandans understand English really well, because that is the language they learn in in school.  But there are many people, including little kids,  who pretend like they understand but they don’t.  If you say “hello” to someone as they pass by, sometimes they will respond with “I’m fine”.  I think this is mostly because they don’t understand English.  But this could also be because they think it is rude that you haven’t asked how they are doing.  So basically you could say anything to people walking by and it is not uncommon to get a response of “I’m fine”.
