Why the changing perceptions on Idd Amin’s legacy?

It is 40 years since Idi Amin left Uganda for exile. He finally died in Saudi Arabia in 2003. His family continues to hope that he will be accorded national honors of some kind. However, what is intriguing, is that 40years ago, Idi Amin was vilified in every way possible, with no one keen to say anything good about him. Today, the situation has improved and more people are willing to be look more favourably on his time as president, occasionally rating him as more influential than say Milton Obote, Godfrey Binaisa or Yusuf Lule. To help us explain this turn around in Idi Amin’s legacy, we have Dr Robert Ojambo, a political historian with Kyambogo University. #NTVNews
