Idi Amin Dada....dark side of mankind

Many of us will be familiar with Hitler and Mussolini but only a few know about Idi Amin. This is not just a comparison, Amin himself have supported the acts of Hitler and Mussolini. He is indeed a dark side of humanity.

Idi Amin Dada a.k.a Idi Amin was a military leader, served as Dictator of Uganda. He offered to become the leader of Scotland in order to free themselves from Britain. He forced the White peoples in Uganda to carry him on a throne and made them kneel before him as photographers captured the picture for the world to see.

Idi Amin introduced a set of policies, named "Economic War". The policy stated that the properties owned by non Ugandans will be stripped off them. This brought the world's anger towards him and even many countries imposed sanctions on his regime. Amin's regime was racist, erratic, ridiculous, brutal and militaristic. Amin was known to cut off the beasts of women and eat them with ketchups. Soon his followers copied this act of cannibalism. Many political leaders considered him as a comical, unusual figure.
