Idi Amin Dada (c. 1925 -- 16 August 2003) was the third president of Uganda, from 1971 to 1979. Amin joined the British colonial regiment, the King's African Rifles in 1946, serving in Somalia, Kenya and Uganda. Eventually, Amin held the rank of major general in the post-colonial Ugandan Army and became its commander before seizing power in the military coup of January 1971, deposing Milton Obote. He later promoted himself to field marshal while he was the head of state.

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.

 Obama will win. It was prophesised by Idi Amin. See Video of Amin's prophecy of a black president and secretary of state.
