More > country into civil war, and the harsh treatment by the Belgians of the native population for the proceeding 100 years. The Congo then sank into civil war with numerous warlords fighting for power. The Simba movement brought additional horror to the conflict. European and American hostages were taken, some were killed in the most brutal way. To stop the bloodshed mercenary groups were financed by certain governments and flown into the Congo. The name "Simba" comes from the fact that the tribal fighters were told by their witch doctors that they would be immune to bullets, and would be transformed into lions when they were in battle.< Less
History of Djibouti, Political Governance By Joshua Hamilton
eBook (ePub): $15.00
History of Djibouti Political Governance. An information Book. Ethnicity as a major springboard of identity politics has significantly affected the Republic of Djibouti since 1960s as Colonial rule,... More > the Cold War and regional politics contributed to widen the rift of ethnic cleavage between Afar and Issa. The mobilization of Afars, the minority one, in the early 1990s faced with a heavy handed repression of the Issa dominated government which makes even the power sharing peace negotiation of 1993 less satisfactory. The power sharing scheme of the government was considered as a political contrivance of coopting Afar political figures for dumping the just claim of Afars which is so deep, and the conflict went on. This had exerted pressure on the government to make constitutional concessions of recognizing the plurality of Djibouti. However, from the perspective of accommodation an ethnic demand which has sustained for long, the constitutional and political adjustments are less adequate< Less

More > total state budget. This situation is clearly affecting both the foreign and domestic investment climate, as highlighted recently by the non-governmental organisation Transparency International. There is also a growing discrepancy between the steady rate of economic growth and the sinking average incomes in the country. Here, too, the inequality of access to public services, driven by corruption, is one of the main root causes of the problem. Marginalized segments of the population in particular are excluded from services, which exacerbates the potential for conflict. There is a growing risk that Kenya's current decentralization process, and the associated partial transfer of power and resources to local administrative authorities, will also lead to the decentralization of corruption.< Less
Mali Political Leadership and Democratic Governance By Aiden Baker
eBook (ePub): $13.99
Mali Political Leadership and Democratic Governance. A Book on Mali, A History. France’s long-term plan for Mali is remarkably short-sighted. The recent French military intervention in Mali... More > focuses on “restoring democracy,” without any consideration for the political and economic problems that caused the government’s collapse. The cumbersome colonial era-borders, erected by the French, dividing north and south Mali were significant in causing the conflict. Furthermore, French is the second official language, and the majority is not fluent. Almost 70% of Malians are illiterate, which seriously inhibits the state’s democratic capacity. Mali’s economy is also insecure. Apart from gold mining, all production companies are foreign owned. This further inhibits the government’s ability to run the country because if several companies pull out, the state will lose the majority of its financing. It is hard to imagine a “recovery” for Mali without any attention to the major problems, which led to the destabilization.< Less
