There are Bad Rulers, there are Really Bad Rulers, and then there’s…

For those who hate our leaders with a burning passion, a reminder to be thankful for small mercies: the president of Gambia rounds up people suspected of being witches (blamed for his aunt’s death) and makes them drink hallucinogens until they confess.

This Yahya Jammeh guy also believes himself to be capable of curing AIDS (perhaps the Pope would like to speak to him?). And wants to mandate representatives of the government to murder homosexuals according to laws “stricter than those in Iran”.

That is to say, he is about as crazy as a creationist crossed with Saparmurat Niyazov, ex-president of Turkmenistan, who famously re-named a month after his mother.
