The majority of Africas problems are caused by Africans. Aid is used to by weapons and their is so much war that cost the money that could be used on
farming and irrigation.
Unfortunately, its not that simple.
Moçambique (or Mozambique, for those who do not use a "ç") is a good example.
After the war ended, in 1992, they started reconstruction, but as a country that lives almost exclusively from the tourism, the floods and droughts
that they had affected all the economy.
They have recovered again, but you see that they are listed as one of the countries in an alarming situation.
The countries that have natural resources do not exploit them because the companies that do it are all foreign companies, the only thing they get is a
reduced unemployment, but those companies usually use skilled labours from their own countries, earning big salaries, instead of promoting the
learning of needed skills for the local population.
