Three generations of my family where born in Uganda. We were born and bred Ugandans, this is until Idi Amin made an announcement on the 5th August 1972. This action by him changed the destination of life… I witnessed the destruction that was caused and how communities were destroyed.
How did people cope? What was life like prior to Idi Amin and during his reign? This book covers first hand events that happened and much more… The book takes the reader through a journey of sorrow, humour, enjoyment, excitement and fun.
