Inside Kiamachimbi Police Station in Mathira Nyeri County, lies an old wooden structure that has stood the test of time for the last seventy years.
According to history, Idi Amin Dada was the third president of Uganda. He was one of the leading soldiers who formed the first Uganda independence army, before becoming president. He was named Deputy Army commander in 1964 when Uganda got her Independence.
Though holding itself to the ground, the structure has a clear depiction of age, a clear indication that it has been standing for a considerably long time.
Every time Amin Visited Kiamachimbi village, people could run for dear lives for fear of being arrested by his soldiers.
Githogori claimed that residents of Mathira who came into contact with Idd Amin and his men would never forget the savage beating they had at the hands of the former president of Uganda and his soldiers.
This was a little known house to the former Ugandan ruler who was brought down after commiting several crimes against humanity and ruled with shrewdness.
According to a neighbor, Mzee Ndirangu Macharia, it's still not yet known how Amin made his way to the interior of Nyeri county where he stayed for a number of years and how the home was transfered to the Kenya African Riffles is not yet known.
