Idi Amin received most of his military training in the British armed forces, eventually achieving the highest possible rank for a black African in the British colonial army in 1959, that of warrant officer. Upon his return to Uganda, Amin joined his country’s army and quickly rose to the rank of deputy army commander. During that time he was a real athlete. He was a distinguished rugby player and swimmer, and held the Ugandan national light heavyweight boxing title for nine years. By the early 1970s, Amin was commander-in-chief of all Ugandan armed forces and in 1971 he seized power in a military coup, deposing the country’s president, Milton Obote. Seven years of brutal rule by Amin followed, during which it is estimated that between 100,000 and 500,000 people were killed. Amin was ousted from power in 1979 after a war with Tanzania and fled to Libya where he stayed for a year. He then moved to Saudi Arabia, where the Saudi royal family supported him financially for the rest of his life. Amin died in 2003.
