“I believe it is a worthy conciliatory gesture for us to at least be present at this important national ceremony scheduled for 16/02/2016. In this regard I hope that we could be officially invited by the memorial’s organizing committee,” Hussein added.
Reacting to Presidential hopeful Amama Mbabazi’s recent promise to repatriate Idi Amin’s remains back to Uganda, Hussein expressed gratitude for the gesture.

According to Hussein, his father had requested that some of his official items (Ugandan flag, protection weapons and some confidential documents) be handed over to the Saudi King.
“We had also consulted officials in Kampala and had received the government position from spokesperson Ofwono Opondo by text message after I had kindly requested him to inquire with his seniors.”
“Islamic religious leaders and scholars both in Saudi Arabia and Uganda were also consulted in line with my own father’s request that whatever should happen to him, his funeral should be conducted strictly according to Islamic norms and rules.”
He adds that as the most senior son near his father when he died, Saudi law required that he signs the final decision before proceeding for the funeral.
“The decision was handed to the Saudi Royal court for their official records together with a copy of my passport. And that is how we all came to the decision on where my father Al Hajji Field Marshal Idi Amin, will lay to rest.”
