Description DM2008061705:EAED:SOCIAL:WEDDING:PERSONALITIES:JUL 1977 - Amin Blesses Juma's Asian Bride - President Amin congratulates the newly married couple while the brides father (wearing spectacles) looks on. One of the resentments which promted Idi Amin to expel the Asians was the inviolabe state of Asian women. For generations Asian men had chosen Black brides, but it was a one way arrangement - until June this year when the first marriage between an African bridegroom and an Asian bride was celebrated in Gulu. Several VIP's attended, including Amin, the Indian High Commisioner and the Pakistani ambassador. There were only a few Asians let to witness the occasion. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA)
