Idi Amin

Two-parter: I know he’s still on the loose somewhere. Is there a bounty on his head for taking out 300K of his countrymen to the point where even the crocodiles wouldn’t eat the bodies floating in the Nile? And what was the meaning of the “Dada” which was attached to his name toward the end of his regime?



Idi, 70ish, is alive and well in Saudi Arabia in exile.

I think Dada is just part of his name. His full name is Idi Amin Dada Oumee. I believe Amin is his surname, but I’m not up to date on the naming conventions of the Kakwa tribe.
