The African continent is ravaged by bad leadership. The cause of bad governance in Africa is given by the culture of crude civilization being practiced in the management of its resources through democracy.
African leadership inherited the form of government which does not suit her society. Democracy on its own is good but unfortunately does not work for the African states where the people are connected on the basis of divisive factor of tradition, culture, language, race, tribe, ethnicity, and most dangerously by religion and many other forms of separations by nature.
Another form of divisiveness which comes unnatural is class factors. This is created by the people themselves through social and economic disequilibrium. A huge wall has been established between the rich and the poor, the giver and the given, the government officials/ their cronies against the ordinary people.
The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) economic model of governance is being practiced in most African states except for a country like Botswana where the civil society collaborates in economic activities with their government and the private sectors, through Peoples-Public and Private Partnership economic model of governance.
Unfortunately, most African states do not understand and therefore cannot interpret nor implement what form, model and system of government they practice and some countries like Nigeria claims to be practicing true Federalism but without truly putting that into them into practice.
Most of the systems in place do not conform with the realities of the societies and thereby yield negative results in governance. Many African states are allured into practices which do not take into consideration the right of the individuals due to the divide and rule practices. The systems in use are tuned towards discriminatory tendencies which relegate some parts of the societies as minority and elevate some parts into the majority, thereby permitting lack of fairness in politics to be precise.
Africa needs a system of government which can provide the individual with human rights, respect and dignity. A system that can be used to conduct participatory governance and for constructive engagement of individuals and groups.
The continent has failed to account for its citizens and lacks policy implementation of justice and constitutional policies for the rule of law. Africa leaders have serious challenges in the supply of political fairness to their people, equality and equity are very costly ornaments to wear in Africa. Human capital development is at its lowest ebb compared to other continents, and citizens therefore tend to be unproductive, even as services delivery is bewildered. Performance does not match with rewards systems in the African continent. Social and economic inclusion for the masses is a far cry.
The African soul has suffered a deteriorated management failure owing to the fact that the form, models and systems in place for managing its huge resources of human and natural resources are counter- productive and can never offer Africa a hope for tomorrow.
Africa must rise up to face its challenges squarely and confront the mediocrity in leadership which has brought continent to her knees in the committee of nations and has put her behind her peers in terms of development.
The ordinary person is being avoided and neglected by governments as the deal only with the private sectors, while the masses are abandoned to live in abject poverty, probably because they are considered as unproductive and disorganized by their governments.
The biggest challenge in Africa is the human resources management, which entails organizing the people on the basis of value (their occupation/industry and profession/ aptitude) so that they can obtain unique identities and roles to play at the institutions ( cooperatives ) which can be established in the communities.
Whence, the society is organized to include the three key sectors of the Public, private and civil societies, Africa shall become a great continent.
