Idi Amin Dada was a Ugandan military officer and politician who served as the President of Uganda from 1971 to 1979. Born around 1925 in Koboko, a region in northwestern Uganda, the exact details of his early life and birth date remain uncertain.
Amin joined the British colonial army, the King’s African Rifles, in the late 1940s and quickly rose through the ranks. After Uganda gained independence from Britain in 1962, Amin continued his military career and became one of the most senior officers in the Ugandan army.
In 1971, Amin seized power in a military coup, overthrowing President Obote while he was attending a Commonwealth summit in Singapore. Amin’s regime was marked by brutality, human rights abuses, and economic mismanagement. He implemented a dictatorial rule characterized by political repression, violence, and corruption.
Amin’s regime was infamous for its human rights violations, including the persecution and murder of political opponents, ethnic groups, and anyone considered a threat to his rule. Under his leadership, an estimated 300,000 people were killed. Amin targeted particular ethnic groups, such as the Acholi and Lango, which contributed to a mass exodus of Asians and foreigners from Uganda.
Amin’s foreign policy was often erratic and confrontational. He expelled thousands of Asians from Uganda in 1972, claiming they were “economic parasites” and seized their businesses and properties. Amin was known for his flamboyant personality, often adopting military uniforms with numerous medals and titles, and portraying himself as a self-proclaimed “Conqueror of the British Empire.”
In 1978, Amin invaded Tanzania, leading to the Uganda-Tanzania War. The Tanzanian army, along with Ugandan exiles, successfully ousted Amin from power in 1979. He fled to Libya and later settled in Saudi Arabia, where he lived in exile until his death on August 16, 2003.
Idi Amin’s reign was marked by fear, violence, and chaos, leaving a lasting impact on Uganda and its people. His brutal dictatorship and human rights abuses have made him one of the most notorious figures in African history.
