Please see appeal by his daughter hereunder.
My father, Robert (Bob) Scanlon went murderedormissing (MoM?) in Uganda in 1977. This was during the Idi Amin years. I just wonder does any one out there have any information which might help to discover what happened to him and why?
My brother said he was told petrol was poured on my father in a room at the state research bureaux and he was set on fire. My brother did not feel that this was the truth.

Shot by Amin himself
Three gunshots that ended the coup against Amin
Posted Sunday, July 26 2015 at 01:00
“He thought the target [Amin] was hiding inside other rooms in the house. His attention was on the other rooms. Unfortunately, he had left Amin behind. Amin fired three bullets which hit Arube from his back.”
“He fell face down – meaning the bullets came from behind. The hole where the bullet comes out is bigger than where it enters from. I happened to see Arube’s body at the Mulago hospital mortuary, it had three bullet holes.”
“Immediately Amin recognised Sgt Toburo, he put him at gun point, saying ‘I’m going to kill you. Where is your brother?”
“Then he said [to Toburo], ‘you say Arube killed himself. You must never say I killed him. [You must say] after he [Arube] realised he couldn’t succeed, out of fear of embarrassment, he turned the gun on himself. I want you to maintain that.’ Now, that is the story which many people believed.”
Sgt Toburo was taken to Radio Uganda and said what Amin had told him to say.

A picture of what was happening in uganda's prisons in those first months was given to David Martin by J.W. He retired into private life, but was arrested and taken to Makindye prison. he was placed next door to Singapore, reserved for those condemned to death.
Wakholi reported that 36 army officers and one corporal were shot and slashed to death by three or four soldiers. The next morning, he was among those told to go into Singapore cell and scrub up the remains. The floor was a quarter of an inch deep in blood. It took six hours to clean. Along with the blood, there were pieces of skull and teeth, brain tissue and empty shell cases........ H.Kyemba

UPC leaders were killed, including Joshua Wakholi, Alex Ojera, and Picho Ali. Out of the 1,300 fighters on the two sectors, only 847 returned. Thus over a mere three days, 453 fighters were captured or killed. And that was the end of the invasion.
May God Bless Uganda.

McKenzie was presented a stuffed Kenyan cob (antelope) that contained a bomb.
Terpil told others the story that "Amin's speech ran so long that I was afraid the damned thing wouldexplode while the plane was still at Kampala airport. So I had to send a guy aboard to set the time back another half-hour."

Very little has been written about Amin’s victims, their lives, and the lives of their families who still endure the pain that Amin’s brutality inflicted on them.

Idi Amin with Archbishop Luwum. Note the pistol at the side of Amin. He was said to have used it shortly afterwards to murder the Archbishop.
Bishop Luwum was tortured and killed by Amin and Minawa Farouk at Nakasero State Research Bureau torture chambers in 1977.
We forgave Amin, says Luwum family
This Month (February 2012) marked 34 years since the death of Archbishop Janan Luwum, who was allegedly murdered by State Research Bureau, an intelligence outfit under President Idi Amin’s regime. His son, Ben Okello Luwum, the former minister of Lands from 1986 to 1990, Auditor General and now a private accountant, talked to Risdel Kasasira about the death of his father.
1. Could your father have done things differently to avoid death or having confrontations with Idi Amin and to what extent should religious leaders get involved in politics?
Amin and his men were terrible people. Just seeing you drive a beautiful car; you are dead. If his soldiers liked your house, they would kill you. So, I don’t know the kind of answer I can give but I know he handled it well because Amin would kill for any reason.
There was no rule of law. Every religious leader is like I and you. They can comment about political issues whenever they get an opportunity because like any other Uganda, they should ask questions about political decisions in the country.
