Do you think these people caused the famine? I'm sure they didn't want it....

President Khama stated that many African countries continue to receive very poor ratings and occupy the bottom half of the ratings, which adversely impact on the ability of these countries to attract foreign investment to boost economic growth.
"On the African continent many people continue to live in abject poverty despite abundant natural resources owing to corruption in some cases. In many instances, the abundance of these resources has been a curse for the general populace...diminishing the confidence levels of the population in politicians, public servants and government institutions as a whole...leaving people in despair and hopelessness. Where corruption is rampant, the wealth of a country ends up in the pockets of a few of these people," said the president.
