PHOTO: How Malawi’s Daily Times Mixed up Idi Amin and American actor Forest Whitaker.

Can you spot the picture error (below) in Malawi’s Daily Times newspaper? The piece was meant to be about Uganda’s former leader Idi Amin. Guess what,  a picture of American actor Forest Whitaker, who played the dictator, Idi Amin in a film was used instead. Were you able to spot the difference? 

Posted below is the real photograph of the ruthless Ugandan dictator himself. I wondered how Malawians must have felt about the error? Comical? Embarrassing, more like.
