Teeth May Smile but the Heart Does Not Forget: Murder and Memory in Uganda

KES 3,550

The people of Uganda have struggled to bury the worst of their history, but after the violent reign of Idi Amin, reminders were never far from view. A stray clue to the 1972 disappearance of a man named Eliphaz Laki led his son to a shallow grave. From there he found the three executioners, among them Amin s chief of staff. Laki s discovery resulted in a trial that painfully gave voice to a nation s past. At once a mystery, a historical accounting, and a portrait of modern Africa, THE TEETH MAY SMILE BUT THE HEART DOES NOT FORGET is above all an exploration of how and whether the past can be laid to rest.
