Obote and Amin mistrusted each other so much that in 1969, they established private army training camps in Kabamba and Bamunanika.

Today In History (October 12, 1989)

Maj. Gen. Francis Nyangweso told the Human Rights Commission in Kampala that mistrust between deposed presidents Milton Obote and Idi Amin in 1969, caused secret recruitment and private army training camps in Kabamba and Bamunanika. This sparked off agitation among the regular army and subsequently a rift between Obote and Amin grew wider, which ended in Amin toppling Obote in 1971. He said Obote and Amin had reached a point where they did not trust each other, hence the need for these private armies.
