Idi Amin Part 5: Husband, Father, Movie Star


Delving into Amin’s private life, we take in his many marriages, mistresses and children, as well as henchmen such as ‘Major Bob’ and ‘The Hangman’. Making a triumphant return to the boxing ring, the President seems in his element. But behind closed doors, frustration at his portrayal in the West is growing. Trying to wrest back control of his image, Amin participates in an extraordinary film about his own life. But while his PR blitz may paper over the cracks, the patience of the Ugandan people is being strained to the limit. A Noiser production, written & produced by Jeff Dawson.
