Mass Murder (Mutukula)

Immediately after the coup, about 800 officers from the police, army and obote's secret police, GSU had ben arrested and detained in Luzira prison. Among them was a friend of mine who told me what happened. On december 29th 1971 after almost a year's detention and many futile attempts to have them released, they were all blindfolded and transferred by buses under army escort to Mutukula prison. There 45 officers and between 250 noncommissioned officers were slaughtered. They were buried by those who still survived. On January 25th the first anniversary of the coup, Amin announced a general amnesty for all detainees....... H.Kyemba
