Idi Amin: Tyranny and Dictatorship in Uganda
From the author s perspective, Idi Amin s reign of terror in Uganda, fantastically counter points the accumulating horrors, experienced by Ugandans and beyond. Idi Amin, from a small Kakwa tribe, found in north-western Uganda, rose to presidency unexpectedly by a barrel of a gun. His terror regime was characterized with murder, torture, kidnap and firing squad, which was masterminded by his henchmen, code named "State research boys" commonly seen in most parts of the towns of Uganda cruising in silky Toyota cars, with number plates "UVS" which the indigenous people interpreted as Uganda very serious. It is estimated that about 500.000 people lost their lives according to Amnesty International report of 1975, and many fled the country for fear of their dear lives. Hither to, NEVER, and NEVER again shall it be that this beautiful land (Uganda) will again experience the oppression of one by another.
