The Most Devilish Leaders in Human History

Category: LEADERSHIP Published: Monday, 29 April 2019 Written by Life Coach Efosa Emovon

One of the worst things to happen to a people is a bad ruler. All through history man one time or another has been oppressed, suppressed and repressed by his fellowman. As one of the most circulated and revered books in human history, the Holy bible put it, “Man has dominated man to his own injury”

Today we will be talking about some of these individuals who used their power and position to bring to their countrymen and humanity unassessable disaster and misery. Unfortunately, generation yet unborn will come to learn of their misdeeds and rain curses on them.

If you find yourself in the position of authority you better do what is right and carve your name into history or you will forever be remembered as an evil man or woman.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

Pol pot

After winning the war in which half a million Cambodians lost their lives, the Khmer Rouge guerilla revolutionary army came to power with Saloth Sar popular known as Pol Pot as their leader.

In the process of trying to create what they called a classless communist Cambodian society, Pol Pot, and his Khmer Rouge revolutionaries; turn Cambodian into a detention camp and a killing field of unimaginable magnitude.

In fact, an estimated two million Cambodian [25% of the entire population] died of starvation, disease, and overwork by the time he was done. One of Pol pot’s detention camp called S-21 is believed to measure up in cruelty to the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland. Some say it was worse than the Nazi slaughterhouse.

It is claimed that of the 20.000 persons imprisoned there only seven people are known to survive. Pol Pot in his cruelty was in the habit of keeping the skulls of some of his victims.

Scholars and political analyst are of the view that his regime was one of the most barbaric and murderous in recent history. The evil regime came to an end after the Vietnamese government launched an attack with 60.000 well-trained and disciplined army on Polpot and his regime.

They forced him back to the jungle where people like him belong thereby putting an end to one of the most brutal regimes in human history. In 1998, Polpot was arrested by some former members of his revolutionary group [Khmer Rouge] and place in house arrest. He died later that same year.

Pol pot legacy!

Pol pot left behind sorry, death and blood and will forever be remembered as a scavenger and an evil man till the world comes to an end what a fate!

Idi Amin Dada

Idi Amin Dada was born in 1925, and brought up by his mother, whom many believed was a witch. He came to power in 1971, after planning a coup that successfully ousted the elected president of Uganda Milton Obote, who was in Singapore for an official visit.

As soon as Amin rested his back on the site of power, he set up a brutal regime never before seen. In fact, at the end of his reign of terror in 1979, tens and thousands of Ugandans had fled their homes and about half a million have been massacred.

After consolidating his hold on power, instead of planning on how to better the lives of the impoverished people of Ugandan Amin focused his time and energy in the mass execution of two tribes [Ancholi and the Langi ] who he perceived were loyal to the ousted president Milton Obote.

He fed the remains of most of his victims to the crocodiles and unleashed his death squared on those he perceived to be is enemies and those he thinks will one day become one.

No one was spared in Amin’s brutality, not members of his cabinet, not his friends, not even his family members. A year after divorcing his three wives publically, his ex-second wife Kay Adroa mutilated body was found in a trunk sewn together. He sent for his many children and displayed Kay’s mutilated body for them to see.

He personally shot to death a famous Anglican Archbishop Janaan Luwum, who he accuses of involving in a coup. After shooting the influential man of God to death, he ordered a physician to write a medical report against his will that he was killed in a ghastly motor accident. He also murdered many of his ministers.

He woke one morning and said he had a dream in which God told him to chase all the Asians who had lived all their lives in Uganda. Before one could finish saying Jack, Amin expelled them from Uganda and took over their businesses which he shared among his wives, concubines, and loyalists. This act resulted in the collapse of the country’s economy.

On June 27, 1976, a terrorist group hijacked an Air France flight that was heading to Paris from Israel. With the full support of Amin, they used Uganda Airport to hold their captives hostage.

At the knowledge of this, the Israelis Commandoes moved into action and rescued the passengers before Amin knew it. This infuriated him greatly and he flew into a rage.

In his madness, he ordered his henchmen to execute many innocent airports personal and hundreds of Kenyans who in his imagination assisted the Israelis commandoes.

Amin executed the poor souls working for their daily bread. Also, he murdered in cold blood an elderly British woman Dora Block who was in a nearby hospital receiving treatment at the time of the Israelis invasion.

His hatred for the Jews was evident in his policies and speech. He once said of the Jews, “German is the place where when Hitler was the prime minister and supreme commander, he burned over six million Jews. This is because Hitler and all German people knew that Israelis are not people who are working in the interest of the world. And that is why they burned the Israelis alive with gas in the soil of German.”

Since good men refuse to do something, Amin added a new title to his name, “The British conqueror” and promoted himself to the rank of a Field Marshal and declared himself the life president of Uganda in 1976.

His long reign of terror finally came to an end in 1979, when in retaliation the President of Tanzania Julius Nyerere, began a determined attack on Amin and his regime.

He was completely routed and put to flight after three-thousand Tanzania disciplined Army invaded Uganda. He fled to Libya but later settled in Saudi Arabia where he lived in affluence from his loot.

Till he died in Saudi Arabia in 2003 at King Faisy hospital of multiple organ failure, he believed he was the rightful leader of Uganda. Unfortunately, he was never brought to account for his misdeeds.

One of his famous quotes was, “There is freedom of speech, but I cannot guarantee your freedom after the speech.”

Idi Amin Legacy

Amin will forever be remembered as a blood-thirsty criminal that turned his country into a graveyard.
