There has been to little interest in the exploitation of African resources on a large scale mostly because the Gold is accounted for, the Jems and the
Diamonds are more profitable if you have to black market them, the Oil is in the hands of the French and the Arabs and not much else is in need form
Its a hostile place.. businesses don't want to be there because of the uncertainty. Industries are well exploited and even furthered because of the
uncertainty. If all was peaceful Diamonds would be much cheaper. And if an organized industry mined them, they would be dirt cheap.
Its best if little kids with AK's pick them out of river streams. From a western perspective.
Some countries like Algeria and Uganda have had a somewhat rise in businesses.. real business, like Western capitalism.. however there is still
violence, and the starters are usually nationals who lived in the west, brought their ideas back just to see them flounder when the population can't
understand the concept.
Its sad.. just look at the Congo.. but it is what it is because greed is to entrenched.
