Nyabire’s wife was Assa Aatte, the lady who was the obstetric herbalist for the Buganda Royal family in the days of Kabaka Chwa. Recall that she is claimed to have enabled Lady Irene Druscilla Namaganda to conceive, after many years of trying and failing. Assa Aatte was very close to the Chwa’s and this caused serious problems in the Nyabire family as you know. Iddi Amin was born during the time of that closeness (1922) and as you know, claims emerged that Kabaka Chwa was actually the father of Idi Amin, causing Amin’s parents to separate in 1931 when Amin was just 9. Nyabire threw Assa out of the Kololo Police Barracks, prompting her to shift to Lubiri palaca with the young Amin. When this started causing anxiety within royal circles, Kabaka Chwa decided to build a house for Assa Aatte at Kitubulu….
Amin’s parents only reunited grudgingly in 1964 when Amin had become successful, but even then, Mzee Nyabire remained convinced to his death in 1976 that Idi Amin belonged not to him, but to Buganda Royalty.
