Charles Wesley Mumbere, 56, a political refugee from Uganda, worked as a nurse's aide in Maryland and Pennsylvania for many years until a change of policy allowed him to return to western Uganda to be crowned king of the Bakonzo people in the Rwenzururu district. Mumbere had originally been crowned king in 1966, when he was 13 years old, but Ugandan ruler Milton Obote abolished kingdoms the following year. They were revived in 1993, but the Bakonzo, who number about 300,000, were not included. (AP Photo/Karel Prinsloo)
