These leaders were put in power to help the nation but turned out to be responsible for the death and suffering of their own people. Below are the list of the most dangerous African leaders.
1. Jean Kambanda
Jean Kambanda was born 19th October, 1955. He was the prime minister in the caretaker government, during the 1994 Rwanda genocide. He pleaded guilty to a genocide that killed over 800,000 people in 100 days in his country. He was sentenced to life in prison in Mali by the International court.
2. Joseph Kony
Joseph Rao Kony was a Ugandan insurgent and the leader of the famous Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), a guerilla group that formerly operated in Uganda. Kony has been accused of abducting children to become soldiers and sex slaves. With approximately 66,000 children recruited into his army and millions of people internally displaced from 1986 to 2009. In 2005 Kony became a wanted man by the ICC (international criminal court) for his crimes against humanity. However, he was a difficult person to capture. By April 2017, it was reported that Kony army has drastically reduced to 100 soldiers approximately from an estimated high of 3,000. So therefore, the United States and Uganda ended their hunt for Kony and the LRA, believing that the LRA was no longer a significant security risk to Uganda.
3. Idi Amin of Uganda
Idi Amin launched a military coup and declared himself president after he became aware that the Ugandan president Milton Obote was planning to arrest him for mismanagement or misappropriating of military funds. He’s reigns lasted from 1971 to 1979. Approximately 300, 000 people were killed during his regime. Amin's rule was characterized by ethnic persecutions, extrajudicial killings, nepotism, gross economic mismanagement and other atrocities. Also known as the "Butcher of Uganda", Idi Amin boasted that he kept the decapitated heads of political enemies in his freezer, although he said that human flesh was generally "too salty" for his taste.
