About the Book

In his epic account of a child’s war memories during Idi Amin’s reign and growing up as a teenager during successive terror regimes, he witnessed political turmoil from violent military battles of clinging on to power, which left indelible traumatic scars on the hearts and souls of his generation. The country was ravaged by war until a peasant army stormed the city, ended massacres and restored peace in most of Uganda.

But the child then, now a father, is worried deep for his children, for his generation and for a country with politicians and the military that have never known the values of orderly and peaceful transition of political power in the last 50 years. Aware that the peace makers and defenders are justifiably about to retire. Should we panic?

The aging and impoverished peasants angry and frightened of the immense threat of unending poverty reckon that, the Government Vision 2040, desirous of modern and prosperous country, is too far away. They hope that the sweet dreams of a better life, promised by this President, can still be lived earlier in their lifetime, during the economic revolution proposed in this open letter to the President, whom they also debate whether he measures up to the title of “The Father of the Nation”
