Government Are the governments effective? Why or why not? Most of the governments are very effective, but some aren't. South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia have very good governments, Unlike those of Zimbabwe, Angola, and MOzambique. South Africa hasn't had any wars since 1902. Zimbabwe has had violence and chaos in the country recently, and economic collapse. Angola and Mozabique are rebuilding after many wars. Botswana and Namibia have good economies and they haven't had any recent wars. The rest of the region has effective or good governments. Popular
Culture Would you like to visit this area today? We would not like to visit South Africa today because of many things. One is that some countries have had recent wars so there is a possibility that it might be dangerous to visit South Africa. Also, several countries have bad economies. This could be bad because it would cost a lot of money to do most things that they have there. Plus, there is a risk that you might get robbed. There are also many diseases in South Africa. This could cause a lot of pain and suffering. It is because of those reasons that visiting South Africa would not be a very good idea. The San People What are they like?
