1. It is split between Muslim and Christian (the latter sub equatorial)
2. Diseases such as malaria and drug trafficking
3. Rebels and warlords
4. Arms trade and Land mines
5. Corruption and Productivity
6. A ‘split’ African Union
7. Superpowers trying to get their claws on minerals and energy
8. Despots
9. Inconsistent distribution of aid and debt servicing.
10.Droughts.

As callous is it sounds, I agree with ‘urgs’. The IMF, World Bank & Co should manage funding, at present every free dollar should go the US citizens/taxpayers.

Coercive positioning for minerals and energy should take place on a transparent and arms-length basis.
