Idi Amin Dada Oumee, a famous military soldier from Uganda, ruled the country as president from 1971 until 1979. He was a brutal dictator known as "the Butcher of Uganda" and is considered one of the worst leaders in history.
Despite the fact that he was universally feared, not just in his native nation of Kenya, but all throughout the world, a Kenyan was granted rare access to the slain hero.
The film and media industry is notoriously competitive, but Mohamed Amin managed to break through to new heights of fame. He was a Kenyan journalist and photographer who was dedicated to his work.
Did you know Idi Amin had 5 wives?
Here take a look his beautiful wives according to seniority
The first of Amin's wives was Malyamu. Malyamu, a prominent member of the Kibedi family from Busoga, was Wanume Kibedi's brother and a well-known school administrator. Wanume later rose to the position of minister of foreign affairs in Amin's administration.
According to several reports, Malyamu was tall, attractive, and had a confident walk that impressed the solidly built boxing champion.
Amin did not 'formally' marry her until 1966, despite the fact that they had first met in 1953. But in 1973, Amin allegedly "divorced" her.
According to a family source, "the family did not want her to become associated with Amin." Malyamu, however, had a different opinion.
In 1966, she moved up to 'First Lady' number two. She was the daughter of the Reverend Adroa of Arua and a practicing Christian. Amin reportedly desired to wed a "female" from West Nile, where he was raised. He focused on the stunning black woman Kay Adroa. She was a Makerere University student when he first met her.
Amin did not marry her in a church, as Malyamu did. Instead, a ceremony to officially seal the marriage took place in the registrar's office.
Following the ceremony at the registry, Amin introduced his "second wife" to the nation at a grand banquet. But in 1973, Amin formally divorced her.
He quickly realized that he desired "First Lady" number three. In 1967, he visited Lango and chose a beauty by the name of Nora. In 1973, Amin divorced her as well.
Big Daddy began dating Madina, the fourth "First Lady," in September 1972.
This time, Amin chose a Muganda who had fulfilled his goal of marrying a woman from each of Uganda's five provinces.
The first Muslim woman in the group, Madina, was well-known for her dancing with the Heart-beat of Africa, a traditional music ensemble. She is rumored to have had the ability to move mountains with her dance by simply twisting her waist.
Every man had his eyes on her because she was such a captivating dancer, Henry Kyemba writes in The State of Blood.
This is largely to blame for Amin seeing her and designating her as the fourth "First Lady." She remained with him until his government was overthrown. The Ugandan government gave Madina financial support so she could travel to Saudi Arabia to care for Amin when he grew ill in 2003.
Sarah was a fantastic dancer with the army band, much like Madina. Amin noticed her as she was performing these dance routines.
In Masaka, Sarah was at the time in love with a young man. She gave birth to a child in 1974 on Christmas Day, although not through Amin but through the young man she was living with.
Amin, however, announced on the air that the child was his own. Later, Sarah's boyfriend disappeared. In August 1975, while the Organization of African Union summit was taking place in Kampala, she and Amin were legally wed.
Sarah stuck behind Amin even after he was removed from power.
However, Sarah fled Amin in Saudi Arabia in 1982 and looked for safety in Germany.
She had just welcomed her third child with Big Daddy at that point. Faisal Wangita was the name of the son. She has some modeling experience in Germany. Sarah eventually relocated to the UK where she opened a restaurant. Sarah Amin described her spouse as being very caring in an interview she gave a few years ago.
