Who Am I, Any Guesses?

I am Mobutu Sese Seko Kuku Ngbendu wa za Banga. 
Is that who you guessed?
Which means: the all-powerful warrior who, because of his endurance and inflexible will to win, goes from conquest to conquest, leaving fire in his wake and arising from the blood and ashes of his enemies like the Sun which conquers the night. 
I was born on 14-Oct-1930 in Lisala, Congo with the name Joseph-Désiré Mobutu.  I later decided that I didn’t like my name, and so then this name came about. 
I was best know for controlling my political power, and gathering vast amounts of wealth while his country collapsed, I did love my Mercedez.

So as the story goes...I found the pictures of Kaitlin while searching through files on our computer.  Rick said it was Idi Amin.
Right?  That is why I said that the glasses were out of character, when truly they were in character.
She was definitely a better "Mobutu Sese Seko Kuku Ngbendu wa za Banga" than an "Idi Amin" right?  I happened to find her power point today and realized apparently we were wrong on our guesses...were you?
