Idi Amin

It’s a rare day that you find footage clips of a notorious African dictator relaxing by the pool half-naked, even more interesting when he proceeds to belly flop his way into said pool.

Amin was relaxing during a visit by the British special envoy Geoffrey Rippon whose aim was to try to avert the imminent expulsion of  50 thousand British Asians from Uganda.

Due to the ‘Indophobic social climate of Uganda. The Ugandan government claimed that the Indians were hoarding wealth and goods to the detriment of indigenous Africans, “sabotaging” the Ugandan economy’ (Wikipedia)
