Description

Two sides to the man who hit the international charts in the 20th Century. Idi Amin has been called the Butcher of Uganda. His rule as the 3rd president of Uganda was characterised by the persecution of minority groups, torture and exalted self imposed title such as " 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". However the 6'4 ft. Amin was also a charming populist leader, a musician, a proficient swimmer and a caring father who at various stages won over his people and the West alike.
