Unintended consequences of the policy of racial segregation in Africa.

27 November 2012, 12:11
The scramble for Africa by most European powers have had both negative and negative consequences for the region.

The current crop of political leaders are a direct consequence of the system of colonialism and racial discrimination largely initiated by western countries. Where Africa is lacking we should blame it on these systems which had brought with it leaders who felt that the emancipated people owe them votes.Some are even prepared to rule for life because they harbour a mistaken belief that the continent owe them for the sacrifice they made in fighting the system.

That the reason they blame their failure for proper governance on the past systems, sometimes they are right because they should not be there ( in government)  in the first place. Our current African government are more focused on their pals and families to an extent that they are not even aware of who voted them into power.

They are too scared to relinquish their power as they may face prosecutions for the things they did when they held power. If you check the historical appointments of most African leaders, you will realize that most of them were appointed on the basis that they took part in the struggle for liberation of their people.

In South Africa the ANC are in the process of nominating leaders who will take them forward, but the road ahead is uncertain. There are not sure if they will reach the destination. The majority are being ignored until election comes.

The fact is that these leaders do not have the skills let alone the capacity to govern the country, they are merely struggle leaders who spent most of their times fighting the sysytem of apartheid. they have no experience nor eduaction on how to run modern government. That is why I say they are the product of the policy of segregation and colonialism. What they do is the intended consequences of these cruel syytems.
