Uganda to build ‘Idi Amin museum’ to attract tourists – BBC News
Uganda hopes to attract tourists with a war museum showcasing some of the darkest moments from its history.
Atrocities committed under ex-President Idi Amin’s brutal eight-year rule and by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) are to be documented.
“We want to put the record straight,” Uganda Tourism Board Chief Executive Stephen Asiimwe told the BBC.
The Uganda war museum, which has yet to be built, will also showcase pre-colonial and colonial history.
“History gets richer, it’s like red wine – it gets more interesting as the years go by,” Mr Asiimwe said.
