‘If you don’t do something about yourgay kid, he’ll end up in a grave withhis guts hanging out’
By THOM SENZEE
There is a surprising portrait in Uganda’sparliament building. It’s an oil-painted Idi Aminsporting a toothy smile and full military regalia.Amin poses while engaging in his trademark low-down, dual-fisted version of a fist pump.Normally, it would be no surprise for a tourist toencounter a painting of a country’s former presidentinside the house of its legislature. But Amin was noordinary president. He was a brutal dictator. He wasallegedly a cannibal who literally ate his opponentsand detractors for breakfast. The evidence forAmin’s cannibalism were the corpses of politicalfoes found dangling by their Achilles tendons, afterhe was deposed, from meat hooks inside of a walk-in refrigerator at his compound.Earlier this year a British journalist — let’s callhim Ian Smith because, as you’ll see, disclosinghis identity might preclude him from ever visitingUganda again — went to the Chamber of Parliamentin Kampala and took photos of some of thebuilding’s more interesting features. The place wasa ghost town at the time thanks to a special eventwhere members of parliament were then gathered.“That made it easy for me to steal the document,”recalls Smith.
