African Addendum

The worst legacy of colonialism is the post-colonial mindset of African leaders who took part in liberation struggles. While Thabo Mbeki makes common cause with the governers of Sudan and with Mugabe because he sees them as comrades, Africa stands no chance at all.

Time cures many things, and it will help cure Africa. When they have all died, the continent will stand a better chance of success.

For a moment, I took "they" to mean "Africans" rather than "the current generation of leaders". But after my hair turned white I stopped and realized what you really meant.

The Chinese will be running Africa by then anyway.
