African socialism

African socialism is the belief in the doctrine of sharing economic resources on the basis of social structure. In any case, African societies were presumed egalitarean.

This conceptualization is primarily a product of the yester-decades (1960s) of African emancipation that proposed to eliminate imperialism gadgetry from the face of the African continent. As such, it has but only remained an ideology to be found in the historical archives since the ensuing decades saw emergent dictators of Mobutu (of former Zaire), Moi (of Kenya), Idi Amin (of Uganda) to mention but a few. The last of such dictator is Zimbabwe's Mugabe who has defined the tides of the time. These emergent dictators turned against their very brethren. They impoverised the masses by patronising over the collapse of the economies.
