Listen man, Africa has had some great leaders in the past. The problem is that most of them weren’t liked by the West so they decided to kill/get rid of them.
tbf for a country, 50 years is a short time. Many of these countries are very old, still dictatorships or have only recently become democracies.
The US had a civil war and looked a basketcase almost 100 years after being a country.
Trion is right 50 years is a good long time to put things in place for a country/state to get they shit together. But African continent is a special case most of the worlds resorces are there corporations and western governments would not allow them to them to freely exercise self determination
Only 2 para in and already its depressing.
Sidenote - great article so far.
Yeah it’s awful. Sadly nothing new, western companies taking advantage of a corrupt region.
