    Idi Aminís son complains about obit 11 years on

    Idi Aminís son complains about the Guardianís obituary notice (Guardian)

    While we are used to a wide range of complaints and complainants it was a surprise to receive an email from Idi Aminís son Hussein.

    Idi Amin died on 16 August 2003. His obituary for the Guardian was written by Patrick Keatley, the paperís distinguished Commonwealth and diplomatic correspondent, who himself died two years later.

    How the story was teasingly blurbed on Fark.com:

    Idi Amin's son wishes to register a complaint with the Guardian about his dad's obituary...from 11 years ago. First of all, when the dictator engaged in cannibalism he did NOT use mornay sauce. Are we clear?
