Résumé : As with the rest of Africa, Uganda makes the world headlines only when it lives up to the myth of the heart of darkness; when an act of brutality evokes an image of (re)primitivisation strong enough to meet the expectations of media consumers and producers. Floods, starvation, massacres and military coups: these are the thematic signs that make up the populist image of modern Africa. Post-independence Uganda has proved to be a fertile source for such grisly images of human suffering, its bloodthirsty history encapsulated by and in the ridiculed figure of Idi Amin.
