Dictatorships have thrived throughout Africa throughout the post-independent period. Some have been brutal. In Uganda, Id Amin killed more than half a million Ugandans. Thousands would be put on trucks and off-loaded into rivers. Bodies would clog the hydro-electricity plant leading to power outages. The brutality of President’s Mengistu and Hissen Habre’s of Ethiopia and Chad respectively are well known. This regimes strangled every democratic space. Thousands of citizens perceived to question the regimes were jailed, tortured and killed. Freedom of expression, of assembly and of press were all curtailed.
