But African countries are trapped into wars and conflicts because of one or more reasons. Some times greed is responsible for this situation. At other times the situation is not far removed from self-perpetuation on the part of political leaders, or poor governance. Thus, statistics has shown that African countries are prone to wars for reasons pretty similar to those that make them prone to coups.
Once a country is shackled into this situation, development does not seem to matter any longer.
Africa does not have peace because it is
If wars and coups that continue to bedevil the continent can be avoided by observing best practices, promoting human rights and democratic freedoms, then these courses of action should be pursued faithfully and vigorously. The same course would also point to the attainment of peace and development. The final result will always, however depend on which way we want to go.
