Joseph Kabila Clings To Power In The Congo, As The Economy And Civil Order CollapsesJoseph Kabila, President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Joseph Kabila has been President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo since 2001. He took office just ten days, after the assassination of his father. Politics is a family affair in Congo. Now seventeen years later, he clings to power as the country plunges into civil war again and the economy slows considerably. Although his final term ended eight months ago, President Kabila has remained in control. Congo formerly known as Zaire, is the giant of Sub-Saharan Africa. At a population […]

Namibia: The End Of Rapid Growth Helps Populism To Rise

Namibia: The End Of Rapid Growth Helps Populism To Rise

Namibia had one of the best performing economies in Africa. As late as 2015, growth was still a respectable 5%. Late last year, the economy was growing just barely at 0.1% and has since stalled. This puts the government of the country, in a politically difficult decision. Populism is on the rise, in the ruling party. However, the demands of these nativists, will do little to recharge a moribund economy. President Geingob first elected in November of 2014, by an overwhelming margin […]

Rwanda: Kagame Provides One Man Rule In Exchange For Stability And GrowthPresident Kagame of Rwanda

  Rwanda’s Constitution was amended in 2015, following a referendum, enabling President Kagame to run for yet another term. He remains eligible to also run for fourth term after that, permitting him to stay in office until at least 2034. The latest electoral tally resulted in a vote that was an unbelievable 98.8% in favor of President Kagame. Not unusual, for a country that is for all intent purposes a police state and is run by a single political party the Rwandan […]

Angola: Elections Will Fail To Deliver Needed Change As Dos Santos Era Finally Ends

Since independence from Portugal in 1975, the People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) has led the country. Parliamentary elections have consistently delivered large majorities, to the ruling party. After 38 years in power, President Jose Eduardo dos Santos is finally leaving office. Yet, the change the country so desperately needs, will remain unlikely. President Santos is the world’s second-longest serving president, behind Teodor Obiang Nguema of Equatorial Guinea. He announced in February, he would not be standing for election in […]

South Africa: Economic And Political Stagnation As President Zuma Clings To PowerPresident Jacob Zuma, the 4th President of South Africa, in office since 2009.

As head of the African National Congress (ANC), the party that led the country away from apartheid, Zuma was able to win election in both 2009 and 2014.

The motion of no confidence in President Zuma, was defeated in the National Assembly of South Africa by 198 votes […]

Elections in Kenya: Tribalism And Violence Continues To Undermine Democracy

Elections in Kenya: Tribalism And Violence Continues To Undermine Democracy

This will be the 6th presidential election for Kenya, since the end of the one party state in 1991. The electorate will also be deciding on a new parliament. The voting results will have a major impact not just domestically, but throughout the region. The country remains both an economic and political leader for East Africa. Kenya possesses the second largest economy in the region, after Ethiopia. Any political unrest in Kenya, will further destabilize an entire geographic area, already facing major […]
