With much personal sadness. I interviewed him more than 4 years ago for his story in my book. He was so gracious to me, so full of intelligence and so humorous, a Ugandan African in the old style, graceful and dignified.
Here’s page 1 of 4 in my book. He gave the photo to me with so much affection with H.H. the Aga Khan, always referring to him as His Highness. When was it? February 1972, the year of our expulsion. FM Kibedi was in Guyana when journalists woke him up with the news of the expulsion.
He pays a personal tribute to late Abdul Shamji Gomba for helping him with a loan to buy his first car in 1970 and then again in setting up his practice in exile as a solicitor in London in 1973.
His sister was Idi Amin’s first wife.
May his soul rest in eternal peace.
