Yahya Jammeh and Idi Amin

There are plenty African leaders who have committed outrageous and downright criminal acts during their reigns of power. Political power can get to your head if not handled well and some have gotten carried away.

Unlike the Queen of England who ascended the throne with the official title, “Her Majesty Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith”, some African leaders who were either voted into office or assumed power after a coup, awarded themselves titles to indicate power.

These are some of the most notorious African leaders who honoured themselves with very long and bizarre titles used officially to introduce them.
