The reason behind the growing trend of the military taking over democracy in Africa

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Coups or the military taking control in democratic African countries were formerly a major cause of instability on the Black Continent; however, they faded for a period before making a reappearance in the 2020s and toppling democratic governments in French-speaking countries. After world leaders decried the trend of coups, everyone expected it would stop, but a failed coup recently took place in Sierra Leone, one of the richest diamond-producing countries in Africa, despite being the poorest.


Many Africans have lost faith in democracy, which is one reason coups have become more frequent. Democracy, which is defined as “a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections,” although the definition sounds lovely, democracy has historically been the most corrupt form of government in the continent, responsible for poverty among Africans.

      Democracy is hypocrisy and the world sees how the central banks put their puppets into place in over 160 Countries around the world If you are going have a dictator at least have the fortitude to be honest about it! Do not pretend you have a say in the system that is non existent. For example the US fell to a CIA lead coup November of 1963. We have all been living under a shadow dictatorship since then. Nixon fell off script and he was taken down . Reagan tried to do the right 5hing and was almost taken out. This is how these inbred psychopaths operate.
