True leaders grow wealth inside their nations. They don’t export the little wealth that is grown to other nations.
Since independence, what most African leaders have been very successful at doing, is to export what little wealth is created at the expense of the countries they lead.
A lot of African leaders are afraid to create wealth for their own people because they think by doing that they will create powerful threats to their hold on power, but will rather enrich a foreign nation with the wealth that belongs their own people just so that they can stay in power with just a few of their friends.
They have over successive generations robbed their own people of growth while gifting foreign nations with free wealth which is being used to keep us behind in development and growth, and yet these same leaders are not ashamed of their handiwork, but rather are conniving with more greedy ementsbto institutionalize these practices by garnishing it with “democracy” which only seeks to legitimize the whole criminal enterprise.
One day, though, we hope the people will see the light and torch the enablers of this scam.
