A bloodthirsty psychopath who ruled Uganda for 8 years, from 1971 to 1979. He seized power in a coup by hiring assassins to kill those in his way, gradually working up the line of succession. After he seized power, he began killing his army soldiers, as well as trying to deport Asian people.

A year or so after he gained power, he began killing thousands of tribe members. He would keep some of the people's heads in his refrigerator, and they would often feed people to crocodiles. At the height of his presidency, 50 people were thrown into a river each day.

He ended up getting his ass kicked when the military became loyal to his vice president. He escaped to Saudi Arabia, and then lived out the rest of his days in Libya.

His kill count is estimated at 500,000.
That Idi Amin was crazy, I hope we never have anyone like that in power.

Get the Idi Amin mug.
Idi Amin (pronounced Iddy Armeen) was a Ugandan dictator. He ate 40 oranges a day for 'sex power', had lots of wives, an infectious laugh and referred to himself as 'His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular'.

He usually gets a bad rap, but like most African dictators, he was just having a bit of a laugh, really.
Idi's friend: His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular, do you fancy a pint tonight?
