Ronikali Merali's Property Compensation Letter

In Idi Amin's expulsion of Asians from Uganda, they were not permitted to take much money with them, nor keep ownership of their property. The UNHCR worked for years to get compensation for lost property by Uganda refugees. This letter was sent to Ronikali's father for the store he lost to Idi Amin's expulsion. Ronikali said he did not take the money offered to him.
