Lumumba Amin, the son of Uganda’s former President Idi Amin Dada, has strongly criticized President Museveni’s decision to reject the establishment of the proposed Idi Amin Institute. A letter from Museveni to his wife, Janet Museveni, the Minister of Education and Sports, advised against creating the institute as a tribute to Idi Amin.

Museveni cited the government under Idi Amin as unconstitutional, asserting there was nothing worthy of remembrance from that era. He emphasized that any forgiveness granted to Amin’s associates by Ugandans should suffice, urging to let the past be forgotten. Lumumba Amin expressed disbelief and sought clarification from President Museveni regarding the authenticity of the letter. He questioned the legal grounds on which such a directive was based.
