Well, I don't see it happening anytime soon. Some may improve, but not to the 1st world standard.

i'm glad your opinion has nothing to do with reality

Better than some and worst than others, this doesn't make it a developped country.

Omg, white people who think they are the only ones that can lead Africa to greatness. Smh.

People never heard of Mauritania, Namibia, Botswana. CNN shows what they want. Equatorial Guinea is no less corrupt then the current USA government. Namibia was the fastest developing country in the world. It might still be.

If the entire continent was under European rule, all African countries would be developed. These countries where doing so much better when they where colonies of European countries.
