Bruce Mckenzie

He was the only non-African ever to serve in independent Kenya’s Cabinet. And it was not in a ceremonial post, but in the critical Ministry of Agriculture during the nation’s formative years. He was very close to President Jomo Kenyatta and some of his most powerful Ministers, but he was also close to the secret services of South Africa, Britain and Israel, relationships that would eventually cost him his life in rather mysterious circumstances. -

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 would
explode while the plane was still at Kampala airport. So I had to send a guy aboard to set the time back another half-hour."
