The public display of human remains has a long history in warfare. Whether for counting enemylosses based on psychological reasoning or demonizing the perpetrators of the violence, exhibitinghuman remains has potently served a variety of political, educational and propaganda aims. InUganda, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has exhibited human remains for political and militarypurposes numerous times. Museveni has frequently displayed the Luwero Triangle War’shuman remains to help secure his National Resistance Movement and Army’s NRM-A politicallegitimacy, consolidate an ethnic-centered regime and harness the support of western governments.He has also exploited the exhibition of the Luwero Triangle War’s human remains to stokeethnic xenophobia and demonization, as well as to stymie the quest for genuine democracy, therule of law and constitutionalism. The persistent policy of Museveni’s NRM-A regime to exhibit theLuwero Triangle War’s human remains has shocked the conscience of the people of Uganda andscholars alike who express the need to focus on granting dignity and respect to the rights of thedead and to bring perpetrators to justice. The repeated decision of Museveni’s NRM-A regime toexhibit the Luwero Triangle War’s human remains undermines any prospects for building a unitedUganda based on genuine truth telling and reconciliation.
