U.S. Policy Toward Uganda, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Africa of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, House of Representatives, Ninety-Sixth Congress, First Session, April 26, 1979   [open pdf - 5MB]

This is the April 26, 1979 hearing on "U.S. Policy Toward Uganda" held before the Subcommittee on Africa of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, House of Representatives. From the opening statement of Stephen J. Solarz: "Today we are considering what constructive changes can be made in the relationship between the United States and Uganda. Clearly, a new and promising chapter in this relationship should unfold now that Idi Amin has been removed from power. The downfall of Idi Amin, which was brought about by the courage of Ugandan exiles and the decisive action of Tanzania's President Julius Nyerere, as well as by the heroic legislative efforts here on the Hill of such Members of Congress as my very good friend from Ohio, Mr. Pease and a number of the other members of this committee and the House, will allow the people of Uganda to pursue the long road back to political and economic recovery. I believe the United States can play an important role in helping the citizens of Uganda overcome Amin's monstrous legacy--the mass murders, the unbelievable devastation and hatred which have scarred Uganda in recent years." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Robert V. Keeley and Keith Wauchope.
