Idi Amin Stamp

Idi Amin Dada, the President of Uganda, from the “Heroes of the White House” series. One of the cruelest despots in history, his rule was characterized by political repression, ethnic persecution, nepotism, corruption and gross economic mismanagement. He said, “In any country there must be people who have to die. They are the sacrifices any nation has to make to achieve law and order.” Observers estimate that more than 300,000 Ugandans paid the price for greatness under his regime.
