hello Jean,

i am awfully sorry my response is coming this late. for some reason i can't explain, i did not see this message nor saw a notification of it by mail.

to answer your question, in my opinion, as long as your characters are fictional and as long as you put that little disclaimer about your characters and scenes being fictional and totally a creation of your imagination on the copyright page, then it is completely okay to use references to Idi Amin's reign. this will make your fiction come into real life.

i did same in my book Ujasiri which is about Joseph Kony.

i sincerely hope my response did not come too late and is helpful.

accept my best wishes on your new book and please send me a link when it is eventually published.

Warm Regards.

Ray Anyasi

Someone Please Help Me Kill My Past

I must be the reason the world rotates and revolves. I must be why they say everything that goes around comes around. I say this because my life has decided to be religiously Karma compliant. Every damn thing I have ever done wrong has come back to haunt me. Every mistake, every misjudgment, every mischief, every misconduct, every single thing with the exception of nothing; they’d all sailed unfor
