English Language has so many words and we can’t seem to get enough of them. Today on our #WordOfTheDay Series, we will be looking at the word ‘Despot’.
A despot is a cruel, all-controlling ruler who has total power and who often uses that power in cruel and unfair way. A despot is an autocrat, a tyrant.
For example, a despot does not allow people to speak out against the leadership, nor really want them to have much freedom at all.
Let’s look at the following examples;
