Most of the propaganda launched by the ex President of Tanzania, Julius Kambarage Nyerere against the ex President of Uganda, Field Marshal Idd Amin Dada, were baseless. However Nyerere,s tactics succeeded and many Tanzanians and some people outside Tanzania believed him. But most of Ugandans continued to respect Idd Amin even when he was not in power, something that Tanzanians will never believe. Although many Tanzanians agree that decision of Nyerere returning Obote to power was a total miscalculation and one can move farther and question if he really achieved his goal. The truth is that Obote was completely unpopular compared to Idd Amin in Uganda. Recently I watched the film called The last King of Scotland in this film there are plus and minus about reality of Idd Amin. The most interesting part was the comment given by academicians. They explained him as a person who opened the African eyes. They were concerned on how the Ugandans with Asian origin treated the indigenous. This was a great turning moment ideologically, and gave self confidence not only Ugandans but African as well, they said. The second point was how he treated his masters that helped him to take the power, Great Britain and Israel. Their intension was to get another Mabuto, using him by plundering African natural resources to west. He was just too strong to accept such nonsense. If African leaders should act the same way he did, then Africa could be respected, they pointed. I personally support the above mentioned points, and due to that I dont see the reason why should we not call him as a Hero of Africa instead of Nduli Idd Amin.
