Uganda's General Idi Amin, living with several wives and at least 30 children in all-expenses-paid luxury in Saudi Arabia.
A polygamist, Idi Amin married at least five wives, three of whom he divorced. He married his first wife, Malyamu in 1966, and his second, Kay, in the same year. The following year he married Nora. In 1972 he announced his marriage to Nalongo Madina. On March 26, 1974 he announced on Radio Uganda that he had divorced Malyamu, Nora and Kay.
