Black Africa - No Light at the End of the Tunnel

Africa - the Dark Continent - is showing few signs of emerging into the light. Plagued by political instability, poverty, illiteracy, inept and corrupt leaders, economic chaos, civil wars, and tribal rivalries, the nations of Black Africa, for the most part, are seemingly headed for economic and political oblivion. Symptomatic of Africa's morass of problems was the twelfth annual summit meeting of the Organization of African Unity - a classic misnomer - held in early August in Kampala, Uganda. Hosted by Uganda's unpredictable President Idi ("Big Daddy'') Amin Dada, the OAU confab was attended by an underwhelming 19 of a possible 46 OAU heads of state. Three nations - Tanzania, Zambia, and Botswana boycotted the gathering completely in protest of Amin's chairmanship of the meeting. Other heads of state sent lesser delegations because they feared possible overthrow should they themselves leave their capitals.
