We have everything in Africa, but what we have unfortunately is incapacitated leaders.

That's not the only problem, the general distrust between people is what prevents ousting these leaders, and as long as it's not solved finding a solution will be extremely difficult.


Also I think that there's a general "no-accountability culture" pervading at all levels of African societies that provides for easy impunity of these leaders.

I think one reason of Sankara's popularity was that he wanted to be held acountable for his actions. And except for Cabral and maybe Biko, I don't think there are many leaders who tried to go that way (I don't know much about Ngouabi, Diawara nor Ndadaye, though).
