I get the celebration when African countries conduct “fair” elections. Hurray for democracy. But why celebrate the fact that we have assimilated the system that enslaved us in the first place? We as Africans need to get back to modes of governance that were created to work within the african society with the african constituent in mind. We had systems that allowed for the representation of different people, autonomous bodies etc. They may have not been perfect but they were ours to fix.
