Henry Opiote: The Obote I knew
Milton Obote's personal physician talks about the late president and Uganda's Prime Minister at Independence.

Former President Apolo Milton Obote was not infallible but his role in agitating for the country’s independence, cemented his legacy as a statesman.

In this story, Obote’s personal physician Dr Henry Opiote reveals Obote’s role in shaping the political landscape and the dark hours as the 1985 coup d'etat unfolded.

Opiote reveals that Gen Tito Okello was not involved in the coup but a senior clergyman in the country instigated Brig Bazillio Olara Okello to stage a coup on religious grounds.
