Here is one of history's worst dictators. A ruthless ruler you should know about.


The years 1971 to 1979 was the period in Ugandan history, when people all over the saw another Hitler in action. Idi Amin, one of the cruelest man on the earth at that time, became the third president of Uganda. He was so cruel; he would kill anyone who seemed to oppose him or seemed to prove threat to his rule. During his reign more than 100,000 people lost their lives, so he became infamous as “the Butcher of Uganda”. He had four wives, 20 other mistresses and 20 children.

Another mystery which haunts his life is of him being a cannibal. Many believed that he would eat the corpses of his opponents and would also give them to the alligators and alike. Also it is said that he would store raw human parts in fridge and would ate them for lunch and dinner as it is. This leader of Uganda definitely becomes the most notorious leader of all time. After the nationalists oppose him in 1979 he fled with his family to Libya and then to Iraq, finally he was allowed to stay at Saudi Arabia on the condition he would stay away from politics, where he died in 2003.
