For thousands of years before the white man came, Africa ran along tribal lines, some big & some small with each tribe headed by a leader. By necessity that leader needed to be a brutal tyrant & buy loyalties from a core of supporters in order to survive more than a week in the position. Also the black populace, much like people from the middle eastern & north African regions have a need to be told what to do. They expect it. A couple of hundred years living under the Colonial system ain't going to change this system any time soon and "way of doing things" that has been ingrained in African society for thousands of years. The only options are "re-colonization"; which the Chinese seem to be going for in a cleverly subtle way on the dark continent these days or just let them get on with it and let nature take its course.
