This article is a teaser to a number of articles that will focus on the former Ugandan President, Idi Amin Dada Oumee. The stories surrounding him, both myths and facts elicit nothing but dread. They tickle imaginations, draw out gasps and sighs, whiles others are outrightly funny. It is only apt to say, the enigma,Idi Amin, was a ‘salad’ of sweet and sour character.
In July of 1978, Idi Amin declared himself as the ‘Conqueror of The British Empire’ during a conference of African heads of state. Of course, not that Idi Amin embarked on a war expedition against the British, not to talk of wining — at least not in the pages of modern history.
This particular title he gave himself, many of which he had, stemmed from the fact that he successfully expelled the many British workers Anne business owners in his country, making it Britain-free,bearing in mind that the British had colonized Uganda since 1897.
He would go ahead to expel many other foreigners from his country especially Asians, all in his bid to eradicate what he considered as another form of colonization. Here are a few shots of him at the July 1978 conference of African heads of state where whiles giving a speech, he made that famous declaration.
Subsequent articles will delve into specifics. The man Idi Amin Dada and what he stood for will also be discussed. Please make a date with us. Kindly ‘follow’ the page to get updated whenever we post contents here. Thank you very much.
