  • Description

    Uganda's new president Godfrey Binaisa has been celebrating with his people, the Tanzanian Army and a number of foreign guests, his instatement as President and the overthrow of Idi Amin. The celebrations took place in Entebbe. Binaisa replaced Yusufu Lule who stayed in power for only three months. Reports from Kampala say there had been fears in Uganda that Lule was "leading to a kind of fascism" and observers believe that to be the reason why Binaisa was voted into office. But as ABC's Tony Joyce reports, Binaisa still faces the possibility of an internal power struggle.
