Throwback: Content of Idi Amin's Funny Letter to Queen Elizabeth II

Idi Amin was one of the most brutal dictators in the world who ruled Uganda as President from 1971 to 1979. During his reign it is estimated that 150000 Ugandans were butchered by Idi Amin Dada.

Queen Elizabeth II passed away recently and was buried Yesterday Monday 19th. We came across a letter believed to be addressed to her by Idi Amin many years ago. The letter is full of grammatical errors that make it even more hilarious.

"My Majesty Mr. Queen Sir, horrible ministers and Members of Parliament, invented Guests, ladies undergentlemen. I hereby thank you completely. Mr Queen sir and also what he has done for me and my fellow uganda who have come with me. We have really eaten very much. And we are fed completely. And also very thanks to you keenly open up from all windows: so that those plenty climates can come into lunch. But before I go back to my country with a plane from the Entebbe airport of London, i wish to invitation you Mr Queen, to become home to Uganda so that we can also revenge on you

You will eat a full cow; and also feel up your stomach and walk with difficult because of full stomach completely. Even when you want to rest at night: I will make sure that you sleep on top of me in the top upstairs of my mansions completely so that you will enjoy all the gravity of fresh air

If I leave the presidency, my predecessor will rule for live. But now am sorry because I have to tell you that I have made a shortcall on you only. But next time, I shall make a long call on you to last the whole moon completely. Thank you very much to allow me to undress you completely before these extinguished ladies undergentlemen sir.

Lastly but not list, I ask the band to play our International anthem of the Republic of Uganda and also the British International anthem. Your Majesty sir, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and from the bottoms of the people of Uganda"


Idi Amin Seized Power from Milton Obote in 1971 after a successful coup d'etat. He ruled Uganda with a fist for 8 good years where an estimated 300000 deaths is attributed to him. In 1979, a group of rebel Uganda forces with the help of Tanzanian Army invaded and toppled Amin's regime, bringing it to an end. Idi Amin fled to Libya before eventually settling in Saudi Arabia until his death in the year 2003.
