Uday Hussein was born in Baghdad to Saddam Hussein al-Majid al-Tikriti and Sajida Talfah while his father was in prison. Although he was of legal age for military service during the Iran-Iraq War, Uday did not volunteer to fight, nor was he conscripted into the Iraqi military, as were most of his countrymen. Conscription (also known as the draft, the call-up or national service) is a general term for involuntary labor demanded by some established authority
Uday earned a degree in engineering from Baghdad University, graduating summa cum laude and top of his class of 76 students.

Although his status as Saddam's eldest son made him Saddam's prospective successor, Uday fell out of favor with his father. In October 1988, at a party in honor of Suzanne Mubarak, wife of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Uday murdered his father's personal valet and food taster, Kemal Hana Gegeo.

Samira Shahbandar was allegedly Saddam Hussein 's second wife Uday considered his father's relationship with Shahbandar an insult to his own mother. He furthermore feared losing succession to Gegeo, whose loyalty and fidelity to Saddam Hussein were unquestioned. 
As punishment for the murder, Saddam briefly imprisoned his son. The original sentence was eight years; Uday probably served half of that in a private prison. A private prison', jail or detention center is a place in which individuals are physically confined or interned for profit In response to personal intervention from King Hussein of Jordan, Saddam released Uday, banishing him to Switzerland as the assistant to the Iraqi ambassador there.
