Is Uganda’s Late President Idi Amin Dada a Hero or a Villain? A lot has been said about Amin who ruled Uganda from 1971 when he overthrew the Milton Obote I government through a military coup, until 1979 when he was deposed by combined military forces of Ugandans with the help of the Tanzania government.
Some people swear that Amin’s government was a dictatorship full of murder and torture, while others always cite Amin’s government as developmental and beneficial to Uganda’s. A new book on Uganda’s controversal and most internationally known President is out and on sale on Amazon.

Stephen Mungoma, the publisher and promoter of the book says it is aimed educating people on facts of history and through knowing the facts during Amin’s reign, encourage and inspire people to make informed decisions based on facts.
