    Background: President Idi Amin of Uganda announced the resignation of his Foreign Minister, Joshua Wanume-Kibedi at a meeting of leading Ugandan businessmen in Kampala on Saturday (28 April).

    Before making the announcement President Amin told the meeting that the "fire of economic independence, started in Ugands last year, will spread to the whole continent of Africa in the very near future".

    The meeting at the Uganda International Conference Centre, was called by the President so that traders from all parts of the country could meet to discuss common problems. Main issues were the lack of certain essential goods in the country and the need for long-term loans to get business moving.

    President Amin said he had accepted the resignation of his Foreign Minister. Mr. Kibedi is the President's brother-in-law and has been absent from Uganda since February. His whereabouts are unknown. The 31-year-old Mr. Kibedi had been among the Ugandan leader's closest advisers since he took power in 1971
