Quote of the Day

Via Norbert Mao and Professor Mahmood Mamdani:

"In a 1972 visit, Amin went to Makerere with a full battalion of troops. He said: “I came with a full battalion of troops so that when you raise your heads from your books, you know who has power.” Amin then added: “On my way, I stopped at Mulago (the university teaching hospital) and I looked at your medical records and I saw that most of you are suffering from gonorrhea.” Then he paused and said: “I will not tolerate you spreading political gonorrhea in Uganda”. This attitude of “might is right” exists even in today’s Uganda."
