Colonization days
During the colonization days of Africa, european country scatter across Africa an had their own colonies which eventually turned into the african countries we have now. The european official made sure that no African could reach position of responsibilities in the colonies they own to keep their power. The colonial system was a system of corruption and repression. when european settler came to this colonies they took away the best land from the African farmers, then they forced the African's to work on the farms because they did not want to do it themselves. African men were made to pay taxes in which they could only get if they worked for wages.

In 1970, Africa owed a little under $11 billion By 2002, that grew to about $295 billion.
Although Africa is rich in resources such as oil and diamonds Africa as a Continent has failed to bounce back from it colonization days.
Debts owed to the multilateral institutions such as the IMF and World Bank is currently around $153 billion
African countries loan money from organization such as the World Bank are meant to aid the country during this economic crisis. But instead these loans actually sabotage these African countries. Nigeria has borrowed 5 billion dollars from the World Bank. To date they have repaid 16 billion dollars. Shocking they still owe the bank 32 billion dollars in interest.
For every dollar African nations receive in grants towards development, they pay 13 dollars in interest to the World Bank.
African countries spend up to three times more on debt repayments to wealthy countries aimed at decreasing the strains of poverty than they spend on health care, water purification, sanitation, food, education, institutions for their sick, schools for the illiterate, facilities for the orphaned, and the hungry.
Africa is the world 2nd largest continent making 22% of the earth's total land area.
There are at least 3,000 distinct ethnic groups (tribes) in Africa. Nigeria alone has more than 370 recognized tribes within its population. there is over 2000 recognized spoken languages in Africa.
the only two country that is not under an european power is Liberia and Ethiopia.
there are a total of 54 independent nations in Africa. Africa has about one billion people.
The name ”Africa” was derived from Greek and Latin words that highlighted the continent's sunny, warm climate
protector or predator??
Banks were founded but the African people had no share in owning or running them. Money were being made by foreign company under African labor, but all the money went back to Europe or America. The new ways of working kept the African people in poverty. They brought in modern technology, but gave the African no technical skills, they did not modernize Africa's means of production and trade. They set up working and earning based on making lots of money that are transfer abroad.
Many African's started to revolt they were protesting against forced labor, against their loss of land and against colonial taxation etc. some of this revolt were small and easy to control while others were long.
People started looking for new kind of spiritual guidance, they turned to europeans missionaries and they preached about submission and obedience. The African people soon started making their churches that preached salvation for everyone. this movement spread to almost all the African colonizes. The churches were aspect of revolting against the colonial system and the colonial belief that God wanted white people to rule over black people.
A new form of slavery
By the 1930s, the colonial powers had carefully cultivated a small elite of leaders educated in Western universities and familiar with ideas such as self-determination. These leaders, including some major nationalists such as Kenyatta (Kenya), Nkrumah (Gold Coast, Ghana), Senghor (Senegal), and Houphouët-Boigny (Côte d'Ivoire) came to lead the struggle for independence.
By 1993 all the African countries are fully independent. The latest country to become independent is south Sudan on July 9, 2011.
Year of Africa
Poverty is the main root cause of corruption in Africa. If you need to stop corruption, end poverty first. -Peter Chol, Minnesota,USA
I believe corruption is as deadly as the AIDS virus and should therefore be seen as such. Millions of Africans today live below the poverty line because of the canker of corruption. -Osabutey Anny, Ghana
"There are limitations to rights ... with rights come responsibilities. What we cannot excuse is indignity. Because even when I get arrested … my dignity still has to be maintained....That kind of professionalism we unfortunately don't see with our police," -Eldred de Klerk,
Corruption in Africa is growing at an alarming rate due to poverty which is rampant. Miserable salaries that can not suffice to cater for a big and extended family force many people to opt for bribes to meet the needs. -, Malawi
1930s, the, the colonial powers had cultivated (sometimes inadvertently) a small elite of leaders educated in Western universities, and familiar with ideas such as self-determination.

My opinion
Western society needs to stop throwing free things at Africa. This does nothing to Africa but hinder the people who live in it, African's need to learn the best way to grow their food, produce their resources and govern their people properly. This will create many jobs, parent will have money to send their kids to school, they will grow up with as much capability and education as a kid in the western world. They will known that they too can become doctors, lawyers, engineers, actors, producers, artist and president. In order wards destroying the cycle of poverty.
Nearly three billion people around the world live on the equivalent of US$2 a day or less. Some 500 million of them are in Africa, where three-quarters of the population lives in poverty.
Only 57% of African children are enrolled in primary education, and one in three of those does not complete school.
More than 50 percent of Africans suffer from water-related diseases such as cholera and infant diarrhea.
About two thirds of the 34 million people in the world with HIV/AIDS live on the African continent.
Ten of the 21 countries in the southern and eastern region have an average annual per capital income of less than US$400.
More than 70 per cent of the continent’s people live in rural areas and depend on agriculture for food and livelihood.
3,000 Africans die each day of AIDS and an additional 11,000 are infected. Less than one percent are actually treated.
Many native groups in Africa believe family relationships are more important than national identity, and people in authority often use nepotism and bribery for the benefit of their extended family group at the expense of their nations.

When Africa was decolonized the Europeans and America colonies left Africa with uneducated people, no training in running a proper government, and no training in running business.
