Mr Sirayo Yona Nyeko

New book reveals impact of Amin’s bloody rule

By George Murumba
15th Aug 2011:

The new book
The daughter of one of former Ugandan dictator Idi Amin’s many victims has written a book called ‘The Silent Sunset’ which talks about her late father Mr. Sirayo Yona Nyeko, a prominent Acholi from Kitgum who was one of the people killed in 1977 during Idi Amin’s reign of terror.
In an email to Uganda Correspondent, the author, Ms Jennifer Nyeko-Jones, who is a practising Lawyer in the United Kingdom says, “…the book is a biography of my father Sirayo Yona Nyeko, one of Amin’s victims, who we lost in 1977”.
She then sets out the things that inspired her to write ‘The Silent Sunset’. “…I have felt the need to preserve his [her father’s] memory, and by so doing, write his story”, author says. The other reason, she says, is that “…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”.
Finally, Jennifer says, she “…wanted to change the mindset that people have, that whenever they talk about Amin’s victims, only the manner of their deaths are discussed, but not what they stood for, or their contributions to their country Uganda”
