  • Description

    One of the curious developments in the skirmishes earlier this week on the Tanzanian-Uganda border is the claim by Uganda to have found the body of a Chinese Colonel among the dead. President Amin claims the man was fighting alongside Tanzanian soldiers. The body has now been put on display in Kampala, and was filmed on Friday (August 27).

    Tanzania has denied the man was a Chinese colonel. The Tanzanians claim the man was a half-German, half-Tanzanian police officer.

    Although the Tanzanian army has Chinese instructors, the Tanzanians say they do not serve in the army.
