To be fair Africa has improved in nearly ever respect in the last 10 to 30 years. A lot less wars, a lot less coups, more peaceful elections and less famines. Most African states boost very good growth rates. It is just coming from an extremely low base and the first few decades after independence for most states were a nightmare.

Europe also produced enough of these guys in the past too. As bad as Mugabe was he still wasn't on the level of Hitler or Stalin.
Hurts to have to say it or admit it. Ireland's economy back in the 1920's was a fairly primitive affair too. FF and FG did some awful things to one another during the civil war and it takes a lot to break the cycle of violence.
Dev probably did his best, but just wasn't up to it. At one point during the 50's the govt circles were considering asking the Brits if we could join up to the Empire again. Emigration was up to 80 or 90 thousand per annum. At one point in the 1960's the population fell below the 3 million mark.
A young TK Whitaker came along and saved the day.
Africa doesn't seem to have the emigration safety-valves that Ireland had; UK, US, Canada, Australia. They don't seem to have the industrial base.
And they go in for big....big... families. Where are all these young people going to find jobs... not even jobs... where are they going to find dole?
Europe I guess :(

Glad he's gone too. Would take issue with the comment about the farmers though. It wasn't a racist act, the argument could be made that they never owned the land in the first place. He shouldn't have handed it over to soldiers and cronies though which is probably why they weren't run properly.
When whitey is eventually run out of the country the natives will be back to living in caves and using tiki torches for light and shitting in holes in the ground , goodbye Mugabe you piece of shite .

Maybe the Irish Air Force could drop a load of johnnies and heavy doses of the pill over the continent of Africa

Quite a few economists are saying :"It's all about demographics". You have your farmer, his wife and their twelve children who plough the land and have a few cows etc. The oldest inherits the plot, the prettiest girl marries in the neighbourhood, the most intelligent or most bookish goes off to be a priest -- or in this case to be a witch doctor and the other nine or ten go off to the big cities to find a job. Improvements in medicine and hygiene mean that children survive the diseases of childhood and what do we have? Seven billion people due to cross the Eight billion mark any day now.
And what dream do they all have in common? They all want a house, a car, a fridge, a TV, microwave, and a little African girl to have what was it ? Twelve children...
Now what was that thingie about the great extinction, global warming, carbon footprint and climate change.?
Connect the dots.
