Amin kicked the Asians out of Uganda 50 years ago – I spoke to some who left, remained, or returned

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the expulsion of 80,000 Ugandan Asians by President Idi Amin. Most Ugandans today seem to have little knowledge of the carnage caused by Amin between 1972 and 1979. Going back to Uganda was an opportunity for me to speak to people who never left, and to those who left but have since returned.
