  • Description

    A former house servant of President Idi Amin has claimed that the Ugandan leader kept severed heads of his victims and human organs in a refrigerator at his home. Thirty-four-year-old Moses Aloga said that in one incident, the President's wife, Sarah, discovered the head of her former lover in the refrigerator. Mr. Aloga told the story after fleeing from Uganda to Nairobi in Kenya. He said that on August 25 Mrs Amin visited one of the President's residences - the Old Command Post in the capital of Kampala - and persuaded him to let her look into one of the refrigerators. In it, she found two heads. One belonged to her former lover Jesse Gitta and the other to a girl called Ruth Kobusinge with whom, said Mr. Aloga, the President was suspected of having an affair. Mrs. Amin fainted and fell down. As she lay on the floor, President Amin walked in with his bodyguard and other aides. Mr. Aloga said that he was very frightened and ran out of the back door and hid with some friends in the town. Later, he arranged with a lorry driver to take him and his wife to the Kenya border. In Nairobi, he told his story to a reporter.
