Daduhubhai Patel: Personal memories of the expulsion

Forced to leave Uganda by Idi Amin’s army, Dadubhai brings a personal account, not of a rich Asian as many Ugandan Asians were assumed to be, but of an ordinary man desperation to escape with whatever he had.

This talk was recorded as part of a collaboration between The National Archives and The Exiles Project, marking 40 years since the expulsion of Asians from Uganda by Idi Amin.

We apologise for the poor sound quality of this recording.
