pretty much, all you need to know...
as much of an official source as you can get, knowing any "in country" sources are suspicious at best.

Africa is such a vast place that no generalities can be made about it. Where you go will determine the climate, environment, religion, and ethnicity...

Pay and living conditions will depend who you fly for...

Hi!

There is a lot of paying lot, and not paying.

I know of some guys that are owed 6 mos to 24 mos of back pay.

West Africa is pretty bad flying conditions. Eastern Africa is pretty good.

That depends on what part of Eastern Africa you're in.

Kenya is usually decent, Tanzania is a mixed bag. Not much going on in Rwanda or Burundi and Uganda has numerous low or no paying places. Somalia - well if you're going there usually you're with a legit operator. DRC - forget it. Sudan - same.

I'd be less concerned about who's buying them and a lot more concerned about who's going to maintain them
Especially if it's the DRC.
