They were the Rockefellers of Uganda, the most famous Indian business familyin East Africa. The Madhvani family had everything. Then, in 1972, under Idi Amin's militarydictatorship they lost it all. They were thrown out of the country and had their businesses snatchedaway.Tide of Fortune is the enthralling story of Manubhai Madhvani, head of the dynasty, regularlyfeatured on UK rich lists. Madhvani takes us through his childhood in 1940s India to his return toKakira, his thriving sugar factory. He gives us tales of despot Idi Amin, who had him imprisonedin a blood-stained cell on death row. He also talks of his success: business secrets such as theimportance of vertical integration and the value of replicating one's most profitable business.Moving from the sylvan shores of Lake Victoria to war-stricken glass factories in Lebanon, Tide ofFortune is an astonishing account of fortunes made, lost and found again. Narrated with the acuityand foresight of a veteran businessman, it is a riveting read.
