The deal, as later alleged by General Nicholas Olenga, an associate of the former Congolese leader Patrice Lumumba , was part of an arrangement to help troops opposed to the Congolese government trade ivory and gold for arms supplies secretly smuggled to them by Amin.

In , the Ugandan Parliament demanded an investigation. Obote imposed a new constitution abolishing the ceremonial presidency held by Kabaka King Mutesa II of Buganda , and declared himself executive president.

He promoted Amin to colonel and army commander. Amin led an attack on the Kabaka's palace and forced Mutesa into exile to the United Kingdom, where he remained until his death in The South Sudanese had been residents in Uganda since the early 20th century, having come from South Sudan to serve the colonial army.

In October , Obote took control of the armed forces, reducing Amin from his months-old post of commander of all the armed forces to that of commander of the army. Soldiers surrounded Obote's residence and blocked major roads. A broadcast on Radio Uganda accused Obote's government of corruption and preferential treatment of the Lango region.
