Africa has had a lot of wars.
But not too many classic, old-fashioned inter-state wars. In fifty years since independence, I can only think of five or six. So you'd think the T-U war would have attracted some interest. Nope. Minor news at the time, almost completely forgotten today.
Except here in Tanzania, of course. There are statues and monuments, people of a certain age remember it vividly, and even young people know that "he got rid of Idi Amin" is to be put on the credit side of Julius Nyerere's account balance.
