An esteemed Nigerian friend (and I do mean this because he is) said the biggest issue in Africa has always been that ex leaders were either executed or jailed.
Therefore with little prospect of retirement without you and family getting executed it meant many leaders holding on to ensure they are families survival.

When leaders can go peacefully and people just ignore it then you have a hope of building functioning democracy.
