Robert Mugabe is #1

"This year, Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe takes the top spot on PARADE's annual World's Worst Dictators list, replacing Im Jong-Il of North Korea. . . . Rankings are based on dictators' human-rights violations, the suffering their leadership has caused, and the amount of absolute power they wield. Sources include the U.S. State Department, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and Reporters Without Borders." -- PARADE Magazine, 22 March 2009

Last year Mugabe ranked 6th. To read more about what lifted Mugabe to the top, visit The World's Worst Dictators. Also read the article 'Stop the Rape and Terror' from the same issue of PARADE.
