Description DM2008061309:EAED:POLITICS:PERSONALITIES:JUN 1970 - Assassination Bid That Failed - Obote speaks on his vision of a self-reliant socialist Uganda on the fateful night. It would have been the most audacious assassination in modern Africa - an unknown taxi-driver killing President Milton Obote while he was surrounded by troops and security guards. But it failed by the narrowest of margins, because a semi-automatic Czech pistol jammed after the first shot, and because a Chinese-made hand grenade failed to explode. President Obote suffered minor face wounds when the first bullet ripped through his cheeks, damaging some of his teeth and pat of his tongue. But, to Uganda's great good fortune, the damage was slight, and he was soon back at his duties. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA)
