    Colonialism, resource wars, lack of navigable rivers, growth of a small but incredibly wealthy capitalist class there.

    There were people who loved to colonize poor countries that have lots of resources. They have also messed them all up, politically, culturally, economically, and environmentally. People in Africa have come to the point of hunger and civil wars. They have left the continent for centuries.No one is going back. Only the guys from the West can still exploit lots of resources in Africa.
