10 000 Entities [REVISED]


10,000+ political entities in Africa were amalgamated into
40 colonies by colonialism; this created artificial borders
through 190+ cultural groups, a one-man-one vote model
ignored challenges of ethnic difference, ensured majority
oppression through annexure of political might, and with
the assurance of Western support, economic advantage

Minorities prefer a European model - with rights & power
for ALL groups, protecting interests & preventing majority
tyranny which leads to bloody revolts - because minorities
cannot win through elections; destructive coups and wars
are followed by ENFORCEMENT of the SAME inapplicable
system on the SAME countries

Leading to more wars - the wrong political model is forced
on Africa WITHOUT providing for minorities’ freedom; we
can save Africa by insisting Minority Right Protection is
REQUIRED for ALL States in Africa!
