Take Africa back from the despots who stole it
African dictators are responsible for some of the world’s worst crimes and violations of human rights and human dignity, they have left a trail of wanton destruction, horrendous carnage, and human debris along their path to acquiring power and staying in power either by hook or by crook, their hands are dripping in blood and their pockets are full of booty, African despots have killed a similar number of people compared to the number of people the African continent lost during the transatlantic slavery and slave trade.
African countries with long-serving despots have experienced collapsed economies; these tyrants have frustrated progressive reforms, stifled freedom of speech, and gagged the press. They spent their time building up their personal army, conniving on how to rig the next quark election; their military budget is more that the budget for education
These despots practice the politics of exclusion; they include their tribe’s men and exclude everybody else, collapsed economies or at least nonfunctional economies are scattered all over the continent.
The third wave of democratization will not spare any despot, their time is up and the youths are beginning to demand a change from Nairobi, to Lagos, to Kampala and Harare, the youths are fed up with the antics of these quark leaders who have no vision for the country or for the young people.
Finally, we need 5 pillars of reforms, we need intellectual reform to guarantee freedom of the press and the media, we need political reform for democratic pluralism, we need judiciary reform as well as military reform and economic reform, Africans have had enough of the Swiss bank-styled socialism, and young people are beginning to call for reforms in the wake of the 2023 presidential candidate Peter Obi of the Labour Party in Nigeria who has become a sensation among young people, the Nigerian youths are hopeful that Peter Obi will lead the beginning of reform and transformation of the different sectors in mentioned above in Nigeria.
