The African continent has come quite a long way with regard to espousing democracy, yet it still has to overcome numerous hurdles as it endeavors to rewrite its history.

Among the many setbacks the continent has suffered over the years is the host of dictators who continue to hold their citizenry ransom while ruthlessly clamping down on any opposing voices.

These autocratic rulers have and continue to commit some of the worst atrocities against their citizens and appear to have no one to answer to. Here are the top five most ruthless African dictators that ever lived.

  • Ryan Cool

    No mention of King Leopold or Cecil Rhodes.

    • TheRealMidnite

      Neither of them are African.

  • GVA

    Can’t believe you didn’t mention the living dictator Robert Mugabe, my white neighbors are from Zimbabwe and they still cry about how that bastard kicked them out.

  • Wayne Johnson

    Who wrote this bull$hit…lmao

    You notice all of these African ‘dictators’ did not become dictators until they STOPPED bowing down to White ppl. Idi Amin used to make the White ppl who visited him bow down to him lmao. And don’t even get me start on Gaddaffi lmao.

    It’s always AFTER they stop obeying White ppl that they become ‘dictators’.

  • LadyRosely

    And Abacha was successfully omitted. Shame and sham
