    Among the continents, Africa has the largest proportion of landlocked countries. Landlocked countries are substantially limited when it comes to food sources and international trade. The countries on the coast - South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, Morocco, Libya and Algeria rank comparatively better in HDI. (See references at the bottom on why being landlocked is bad).

    What is it about (central) Africa's history that leads to the endless violence, famine, poverty, corruption, etc. there? For the Middle East, for example, it's often about natural resources and religious conflict (in very general terms), but what about Africa?

    Africa doesn't have confidence in herself.

    I surmise that is the base of everything. One day, a white man went to our property and took a gander at our ways and let us know that we are savage and classless and that our ways were terrible and his were great. We didn't scrutinize that and on the grounds that he dangled a carrot in type of cash and different favors that looked satisfying before us, we went along and began to do the things he needed, We relinquished our way of life and legacy and to a vast degree our certainty, we began to trust that the westerners were greatly improved than us, and we got lost. Or we overlook that we could nourish ourselves before that and we were doing extraordinary! We had all that we required, we were fine. (I am completely mindful that expansionism brought a few favorable circumstances, for example, training, and that is cool, however it's not my point)

    It all narrows down to the leaders. They are greedy and do not care about the common man. Their sole intention is to embezzle funds. When election time comes, they use some of the funds to lie to the voters. This has led to slow development. Another thing is that the leaders cling to power and even in some countries, we have dictatorial leadership. Corruption is rampant in many African countries and this limits growth and development.
