  2. All these happen because of poor management and allocation of resources in our countries. Instead of working on improving service in our public departments, including the betterment of salaries to our own servants, we keep intimidating and forming restrictive legal frameworks everyday as if laws are eaten.

    I tell you, everywhere you go in Africa, public servants are misbehaving in various ways. In Congo, in Tanzania, in Zambia, Malawi, South Africa, Burundi etc you’ll find corruption. Some countries don’t even have regular salaries to their military men and women and in such situation we expect them to behave as per what we call “CODES OF CONDUCT”? Codes of conduct by anyway will be changed to “Codes of theft”!! That’s what these guys do.

    In 2015 I travelled to a certain African country (name in pocket lol), at the migration office I came across this tough officer who asked for my passport and where was I heading and I thoroughly replied. Then he said, for a person in order to go to the city of their country I mentioned, must have an invitation letter. I thought for a while and I told him once that I was just a self sponsored tourist and so I had no any invitation letter from any organization and that the only documents I had were my personal ones including papers of work which some I showed him. Still he kept insisting on the same view, that I must provide a letter of invitation!!

    I got out and met an old man, who seemed like had been following my debate with the migration officer. The old man approached me and asked if I had some two or three paper currency and I said yes. He went saying that I should take some and put on the first page of my passport and return to the officer and see…. Well, I admit I followed his advice and guess what? The officer took the money front my passport in front of us customer and stamped, off I was free… The old man looked at me outside the office, while smiling he told me, “Hope you won’t forget the rule of the game next time, young man” I shook my head to acknowledge that and left the place.

    Corruption therefore in Africa, especially in public offices has no shame, for those who engage in it are many than the ‘Children of light’
