  • 44 - Idi Amin Part 3: ‘Big Daddy’ Seizes Power

    Amin wages war on Buganda’s king, as the Obote administration firms up its grip on power. But all is not well. After Obote survives an assassination attempt by mere inches, rumours swirl as to the identity of the perpetrator. Brigadier Amin goes on an army recruitment drive, enlisting fellow men of the north. Sooner or later, Obote must leave Uganda to do business abroad. And when he does, who knows what might happen in his absence. A Noiser production, written & produced by Jeff Dawson.

  • 43 - Idi Amin Part 2: End of Empire, Rise of Amin

    In 1960, Prime Minister Harold Macmillan announces that independence is to be awarded to all of Britain's African colonies. Uganda and its 7 million people are now free. Idi Amin zooms up the military hierarchy, becoming the right-hand man of the nation's new leader, Milton Obote. Implicated in unspeakable atrocities against civilians, Amin dodges a court martial and sets himself up as a rogue arms dealer. He is indispensable as an enforcer. But Obote had better watch his back. A Noiser production, written & produced by Jeff Dawson. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

  • 41 - Idi Amin Part 1: The Butcher of Uganda

    From 1971 to 1979, President Idi Amin Dada devastated Uganda as the nation's military dictator. He sank the economy and deported an entire ethnic class. He slaughtered, by some estimates, up to half a million of his fellow citizens. All this while cultivating a persona of 'Big Daddy', the playful joker. He was depicted in the West as a buffoon. But this characterisation underestimated his mastery of communication and his extraordinary charisma. In a continent ravaged by empire, his bloody tale is part of a much larger story. Let's peel back the layers of the myth and explore the life of Africa's most infamous son. A Noiser production, written & produced by Jeff Dawson. Learn more about your ad choices.
