The notorious col. Nassur Abdallah, the central province governor, had by this stage developed a dislike for slippers, which he considered bathroom attire. Once caught wearing slippers in the city centre, apart from being made to eat them, one was spirited off to nakasero state research bureau. Countless numbers of ugandans perished in the dungeons there.
