Instead, they have experienced have brought nothing but economic misery, famine, senseless civil wars, wanton destruction, flagrant violations of human rights and brutal repression.
Africa Betrayed is a powerful attack syittey the dictators who have ruined an entire continent. Ayittey writes devastatingly on the horrors of black neo-colonialism, arguing that it is naive for commentators to blame Africa’s misery on external factors: African leaders have betrayed both the just aspirations of their countrymen and Africa’s indigenous political systems, which in no way endorse tyranny.
He argues that a second liberation struggle is beginning throughout the continent – one that will sweep away the kleptocracy and rediscover the African traditions that have endured throughout the horrors of both white colonialism and black neo-colonialism.

I had the pleasure of being slightly acquainted with Dr. Ayittey; as this book proves, he writes cogently and powerfully. The tale is, in many ways, depressing in the dashing of hopes of post-colonial Sub-Saharan Africa by so many brutal, thuggish “Big Man” dictators.
Sadly, two decades after it was written, the story is little changed. A must read for those who want to understand Africa’s predicament.
