40 years ago Uganda was home to a large Asian community, Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs called it paradise. But the peace and tranquillity that existed for generations was to be short lived due to the actions of Idi Amin. In 1972 he ordered Asians to leave the country and were given just 90 days to flee. Pukaar News travelled to Uganda with Businessman Khalid Sheikh from Leicester. He was born in Uganda but had to leave with his family when he was just 14, but he regularly returns to visit his mothers grave. Pukaar News spoke to other Ugandan Asians who were forced to leave 40 years ago but have since returned to the county and re-started businesses including Mayur Madhvani and Sudhir Ruparelia.

But the phenomenon does beg many questions, not least of which are who is really benefiting from the sale of these products and how exactly are they marketed? We'd heard reports about one particularly controversial business, a complex multi-level marketing scheme run in Uganda under the aegis of a Chinese company called Tiens, which produces food supplements. Its products, we'd been told, were being inappropriately sold as medications - in some cases for very serious ...
T/I: 10:04:13 GS 10:32:39 Aid agencies in Uganda say parts of the country are facing a serious humanitarian crisis following increased fighting between Ugandan rebels and government troops. Some 60,000 people have reportedly fled the fighting in the mountainous areas bordering the Congo. Close to 20,000 have ended up in the tiny town of Bundibujo, 500 kilometres south west of the capital Kampala.

Bundibujo's hospital is overcrowded with wounded and malnourished women and children, many suffering from machete wounds. The United Nations World Food Programme have been delivering badly needed aid to the...
