African gangsters are not ordinary African people but the African Presidents or Dictators. They behave like gangsters or Mafiosos as it says in Italian; they are not politicians or leaders.
They use the wealth of Africa to share with their families and a small group of people in their circle, this what a gangster does in any organisation,
be greedy and selfish . A gangster can't run a Country just like the African Presidents; they can't run African countries that why most of African countries are in disarray.
African people have being humiliated in front of these gangsters, when African people demanded their human rights they confronted with violence from African
People keep asking why there are not revolutions in sub Saharan Africa, poor Africans already having problem to bring food on table then have these gangsters frightened them with violence if they demonstrated on streets demanding their basic human rights.
In Angola some people tried to ask for their social justice by attempted to demonstrated on streets of Luanda(Angola capital city) but Gangsters appeared on National TV warning Angolan people if someone try to follow Egyptian style they'll be beat up. The same thing happening in Uganda and others part of Africa.
In Malawi at least 18 people have been killed and more than 200 arrested in Anti-government riots. President Bingu Wa Mutharika said "If you go back to the streets, I will smoke you out". These are the words of a gangster and not of a leader of the country.
In DRC (Republic Democratic of Congo) Mr Kabila lost election but he used mass fraud and violence to stay in power. According to UN investigators his security forces killed at least 33 people and 83 wounded with life ammunitions.
In Senegal the 85 year old Mr Abdoulaye Wade after two terms in power
he changed his mind by saying that the first time he (Wade) was elected didn't count for that reason he's eligible for third term. Senegal is the only
country in Africa that there's never been a military coup but the old man was preparing to stay in power.
He was preparing his son (Karim) to succeed him that already runs the powerful cabinet portfolios of
transport and energy and instead of thinking about retirement. Fortunately, he lost election that it shows the power of people is stronger than any
political party. Gangster mentally "Don Wade".
In South Africa, wife of South Africa's intelligence minister, has been sentenced to 12 years in jail for
drug trafficking. How come a Minister of intelligence Mr. Siyabonga Cwele didn't know his wife was bringing
drugs in Countries! Only in Africa.
African Gangsters created anti- terrorist polices to terrorised innocents African people but they never created
independent anti-corruption polices because they are the ones who are leading corruption in Africa. African gangsters are not shame about anything;
their families' members are running the government business making deal with private companies for their own interests not
for interest of African people.
I still have a dream that one day all these African gangsters will end up in front of a court of law or been kick out of Africa. I do not have AK 47 as weapon to fight them but I do have a dream and social media sites(My Continent,Facebook and Twitter) to fight the African Gangsters
This is My opinion and My Dream. Written by Mamadou
Thanks, the founder of My Continent. Finally we've website that telling the true about African goverments and people can debate africa issues. That is true the problems that we having at moment in Africa is fault of goverments and also the people in Africa lets these dictators and fat cat in power.
The dictators in Africa put us believe that we're better with them. if they leave the power the country will end up in chaoes. Psychology and fear. Our social life in sub-sahare Africa is worse then in north africa. But Never been any revolution in sub-sahare Africa before, people are scare.
Thanks for your brilliant highlighted on African dictators and their corruption systems. Now they can’t stop people express their point view anymore. Information age that we’re living now is more powerful then entire arms of all African dictators. One by one. Watch out African dictators!
I do love it when African become to spread the message of their continent themselves. This will bring us united again. Africa United. Bravo Mamadou
You can't rule a country by force. That why there're few kings and dictators left in Woeld. Soon or later they'll be out of power because they're not elected by majority of people.
I am agree with my Colleguse. We Africans are poor not because of any thing but because of these blackdog leaders (BDLs), who clean the shirt of white European leaders to gain a gun and kill African humans on the street to fat their stomach. Africa is not the property of this BDLs. Let us come toge
We africans are fucked. They act as if they are the owner's of the country just coz they fought for freedom. This doesn't make sense at all, coz if u are a patriot, you should fight for the better of your country but not do what this ass holles are doing at the moment. I'm just another poor man.
It's so said to see Africans living in poverty just because of Corrupted & incompetent leaders without visions, they should learn from history seeing the likes of Bokassa-Mobutu-Abacha-IdiAmin leaving millions in foreign banks! Let's all fight corruption & expose their dirty deeds to stop them.
It is very sad that our youths and the majority of our people are not conscious of what is killing us all. The reality is that the so called "leaders of the African states" are weak to make it easy to manipulated. We can change all this by have everyone as AU citizen to vote for the people's leader
You all are right,most people around the world think Africans countries are poor but when you see our continent is the richest with all natural resources you can imagine.It comes to share or organizing thing for people our dictators think only for their packets. United together and removed them out!
Mamadue might be right, but Africa's countries need to be discipline! A country like nigeria is more better off during detatorship than when civilian come inn! Today inspite of the poor standard of living in that country it goverment continue to operate in expensive level which is not good.
A gangster is a criminal who is a member of a gang. Some gangs are considered to be part of organized crime. Gangsters are also called mobsters, a term derived from mob and the suffix -ster. Gangs provide a level of organization and resources that support much larger and more complex crimi......
...inal transactions than an individual criminal could achieve. Gangsters have been active for many years in countries around the world. Some gangsters, perhaps most notably Al Capone, have become famous. Gangsters are the subject of many movies, particularly from the period between 1930 and 1960.
With the above description its easy to compare and contrast.
Money, power and legitimacy gives the unprecedented access to resources especially money, human and natural/mineral resources.
Taking without investing back to me is mindless and should be classed as gagster and criminal.
Your dream could be our dream come true with such efforts/initiatives and follow up actions. keep on Mamadou and Africa will stand sooner than but not without such Passion.
no no this NO REALY SOME OF THEM BUT USUALLY IT BECAUSE AFRICAN PRESIDENT USUALLY NOT THAT THEY HAD LEARN BUT THEY WRE FREEDOM FIGHTERS
You forgot about gambia. the worst in west africa caught importing 14 containers of arms in lagos. I dont think their is a worst ganster like yahya jammeh. keep it up mamadou
Hello earthlings. My feelings is that it aint the leaders or individuals in such positions to be blamed most part. I think we are the ones to be blamed afterall. the power is in the masses. Do you guys really think the situations will changed if all current so called dictators are replaced? I dont think so. the next person may be just as bad or even worser. it in the system already installed. so dont go personal. I may sound now insulting but we got to be real. If the masses are uneducated, unmotivated, passive, illetirated, etc., any guy wo jumps in the top office will manupulate those masses. Its quite natural to take advantage of the weaker one as evident. do you remember the last time you were taken advantage of? In my view, no dictator will remain for long if we dont act and stand up for our rights.We are our own enemy. its has to starts with us. even myself would just easily become another die-hard dictator for another 100 yrs if granded a chance for top job on the continent most people opt to not fight for their rights and. THE WAY THE LEADER IS THE REFLECTION OF THAT PARTICULAR NATION.
How big a gathering that was
Most African countries who benefited from Soviet,China and other Communists partners to acquire independence don't believe in human rights.When people vote there is intimidation mostly to the illiterate elders there is rigging and also people look @ their tribe to rule and benefict not looking natio
you cant continue to treat us as trash
we are the workers of the world, we are the miners, the teachers the carpenter
the nurses, the policeman.
the oppression upon us all is what should unite us as one
the torch of liberation has gone out over our continent
we demand change and demand it now
What is happening in mali is very embrassing. invaded by two forces now fighting over Turf, which is your lands your ancestor's land as we watch. we should unite in any form and push out these invaders.
we are more aware and more determined than ever before
this it, this our time, an era of progressiveness
we shall not stand in line and continue to do your bidding
we shouldnot look into our children's and not success
thank God for this eye opener, it's time for Africa to take the bull by the horn. Africa Arise!!!
It is a high time for the youth of today to take action and change the course of history in africa, enough is enough. Revolution must begin if your in power in order to misuse the wealth of our continent you must step down ASAP
