Was it possible for a dictator's family members to casually walk into a random bank to grab money?
The motivation of the Question:
- Recollecting SKK's attempt at bank robbery
- Road renamed after a killer thug SKK
- Reasons for army's anger towards SKM
The government says this is a conspiracy and urban myth circulated by the opponents and haters:
Hence, a natural question arises -
Why would the son of the father of the nation need to rob a bank when he was an undisputed leader of the country and was in control of everything?
According to my assessment, The Father of the Nation did not become a total autocrat until 24 February 1975. Therefore, his son robbed the bank to get a steady supply of money. Another reason could be that the Father of the Nation disagreed with his son's appetite for money.
Why Mobutu Sese Seko?
To further strengthen my theory, I need to know about a totalitarian, infinitely corrupt dictator. Mobutu Sese Seko seems to be the best fit in this case. His corruption was so legendary that it is said that he institutionalized corruption in the government:
- A Criminal State: Understanding and Countering Institutionalized Corruption and Violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo
So, my question is, even during the regime of Mobutu Sese Seko, was it possible for him or his family members to casually go to a random bank in the country and take money at whims?
Alternatively, you can give an example of any other dictator's family members.
