Where greed originated from,
In those days before the European national came to colonize Africa, the people of Africa were ruled by Kings. The monarch system was so effective in uniting people and there was respect for the royal blood.
Things changed when the white fellows came all the way to Africa to look for raw materials for industries in their homeland.
These Europeans treated people of African race as a third class citizen and in most cases, only black people were laborious for the white settlers. People worked hard but the pay was so little—- and no complains because such action signaled death.
In this case, the only thing that African people learnt from the white invaders was greed.
The survival for the greediest,
Democracy has been sinking its roots in Africa, but still we have election malpractices each time. The issue with African democracy is the fact that majority of leaders only view it as a pass time activity. Taking it seriously is something they just can’t do.
To mast African leaders, the more one stays in power the better the chances of becoming an immortal leader. In most cases, the incumbent leaders would manipulate several country structures just because of power. The most targeted system is the constitution of the affected country.
Wild Leadership and pain for the people,
When someone changes the governing systems to fit his or her agenda for the future, the person creates many problems more than solutions. No wonder people lose lives in that process, however, the greedy fellows do not take that as an issue. To such like people, power is all that defines everything.
How to solve these issues?
Actually there is no direct means of solving African problems. Education only worsened the situation and nowadays, majority of leaders who cling on power are educated individuals who knows what is right and they wrong side of it. These people only choose evil because that is the gate way into more riches. Just like what the colonial governments did.
