Why did Saudi Arabia let Idi Amin live out his exile there?

He had no friends and if he had money they could have just taken it and killed him

    I am unsure but I think they took him in in exchange for him giving up being leader in his country.  He was not really willing to give up his dictatorship but the writing was on the wall he would be murdered or tried for crimes against humanity if he could not find an honourable way out he would have realised he would have to hold on as long as could as President as soon as he lost the position he would either have been killed by his own people or arrested to stand trial for his crimes so likely before the offer from Saudi Arabia he had no choice but to hold power for as long as he could.  When he had the offer of asylum he likely realised he had bled the country for all he could and now his life would be in jeopardy if he did not leave. 

      As far as no friends people liking him dictators have friends who have favoured them.  They pay big wages and bribes to the top military leaders and the police leaders and anyone that can help them hold power and keep the people down.
