Robert Guei

When Henri Konan Bédié was deposed in 1999, Robert Guei was installed as the president of the Ivory Coast. Little did he know that his term would be over in less than a year. 

In October 2000, he run for president against Laurent Gbagbo, the only candidate he had allowed to run against him, only to be beaten resoundingly by the latter. Guei refused to hand over power leading to chaos in the city, which eventually forced him to flee the country.
