    Background: In Kampala, the Ugandan capital.a dusk-to-dawn curfew imposed after a military take-over ousted absent President Obote is being ignored -- while the people celebrate with singing, dancing and round-the-clock drum-playing.

    The take-over occurred on Monday (January 25) while President Obote was on his way back from Singapore Prime Minister's Conference. Immediately after a radio announcement that the army, lad by Major-General Idi Amin, had taken control jubilant crowd swept through the city streets shouting "Long live the army" and "Long live Amin".

    During the take-over, Dr. Obote's house was searched and arms, including an armoured scout car and Russian weapons, were uncovered. They formed part of Dr. Obote's personal armoury.

    Meanwhile, as Dr. Obote and President Julius Nyerere of Tanzania held secret talks in Dar Es Salaam, General Amin said he was preparing for an invasion by Tanzanian troops. The two countries share a border across Lake Victoria.
