Uganda hopes to attract tourists with a war museum showcasing some of the darkest moments from its history.

Atrocities committed under ex-President Idi Amin’s brutal eight-year rule and by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) are to be documented and showcased to those curious to know about Idi Amin.

“We want to put the record straight,” Uganda Tourism Board Chief Executive Stephen Asiimwe told the BBC.

The Uganda war museum, which has yet to be built, will also showcase pre-colonial and colonial history.

The East African nation cannot run away from its bloody history, the tourism board chief says.
