FORMAT Portrait; 147mm x 210mm; Paperback
In the years that the dictator, Idi Amin, ruled over Uganda, very many innocent people were slaughtered, beaten mercilessly and, at best, became prisoners in their own homes.
Join our intrepid hero and beautiful heroine on a journey that will take you from the capital city of South Africa, Pretoria, to deep within the heart-land of the otherwise land-locked beautiful country of Uganda.
Witness the misguided ambitions of diplomats, sitting in comfortable chairs at oak conference tables, and compare this to the wild expanses and jungles of central Africa, where tyrants rule absolutely.
