Uganda Looks Back at Two Historic Events

Forty-seven years ago, in 1971, the Ugandan military, led by General Idi Amin, carried out a coup against the government of president Milton Obote on January 25. And 32 years ago, also on January 25, the National Resistance Army handed the Uganda National Liberation Army regime a crushing defeat, taking Kampala after a five-year bush war.
