Forumists,So many wild allegations have been levelled against late Idi Amin. Though he was a monster, Kay Amin was murdered by a Mulago gynecologist one Dr Mbalu Mukasa who had turned into his lover while trying an abortion to cover his tracks for fear of Amin’s wrath. Th e said doctor lived in Kololo and that was around 1974. He poisoned himself and the wole family but luckily his wife and children was ably attended to at Mulago Hospital and they survived but Dr Mbalu Mukasa died and was buried at his ancestral grounds. Kay Amin’s corpse was dismembered by the said doctor and his medical assistant with a purpose of disposing off the body which they failed to do. I was in nursery school at the time and i watched these events unfold. My late mother attended the doctor’s burial. Please do not victimise Hussein Amin for the events of those days some of us have lived in Uganda for a while to know what exactly happened during those dark days.
Kay Adroa became ‘First Lady’ number two in 1966. She was a Christian and a daughter of the Reverend Adroa of Arua. According to different sources, Amin wanted to marry a ‘girl’ from his home area, West Nile. His eyes settled on Kay Adroa, a black beauty. By the time he met her, she was a student at Makerere University.
Like in Malyamu’s case, Amin did not marry her in Church. Instead, a ceremony was held at the registrar’s office were the marriage was sealed.
The function at the registry was followed by a splendid reception at which Amin showed his ‘second wife’ to the country. However, Amin ‘officially’ divorced her in 1973.
””The account of ‘Dr. Mukasa attempting an abortion with the help of Rwandan medical assistant” is one that is collaborated by that very medical assistant whom I have interacted with. Only that he is not Rwandan but Ugandan from Bufumbira County Kisoro District. On discovering that Kay was dead he took refugee in Rwanda and only returned to Uganda in the 1980s to pursue business and farming for a living. He still lives”- Edgar Muvunyi Tabaro
