Thirst for power became a day-to-day song in the minds of many African leaders after independence. Politics being the order of the day, with many senior and ‘amateur’ politicians rising to power day-in- day-out; political scholars have it that “power is a tool to inherit the minds of the voiceless in the society” something that depicts the exact face of most of the African leaders. South is nothing compared to the north! Nowhere to run to for you to embrace the independence and the privileges that came as a result because politics have corrupted it all and switched the minds of the people thought to bring sanity to fellow ‘black-skinned’; turning every dawn to a call and a cry of justice and good representation from the meek.
Attaining independence in Africa have led to the rise of mighty so called ‘kings of the jungle’ that eventually turned against the flock and brought about the Hobbesian state to their kingdoms and nations, developing a sense of mistrust and raising up tyrannical alarms to the ears of the poor Africans who once praised them as their saviors from the colonial master.
