Hi! My name is Deanna, are you ready to hear about Idi Amin?
I'm going to tell you about the Dictator, Imi Amin. He caused many deaths and took over the country. He was a part of the Ugandan Military and moved through ranks quickly, becoming Commander. Using his military power, Amin overthrew the current elected government in 1971.
How did he maintain control?
I will get rid of the secret police, create economic reforms and the necessary change for our country!
Except anyone thought to oppose him or get in the way was executed or tortured.
