About the Book

What are the origins and solutions of Africa’s civil conflicts? Putting straight answers to this question, the origins of Africa’s civil conflicts are the very corrupt politicians who think that members of the civil society are at their mercy and can do nothing to stop their lootings and unfairness. They buy houses overseas to send their children there to study, including transferring money into foreign bank accounts, leaving their people to perish, state schools and hospitals in their countries to impoverish. This happens in all African countries, including Sierra Leone, where politicians have refused to get it right. One government politician was to be appointed minister of Foreign Affairs and International Corporation in Sierra Leone, but he told the Parliamentary Committee that his credentials to substantiate his CV were to be faxed by his son from London in UK, indicating that although the politician attends Sierra Leone parliament, his family lives and supports their living expenses in UK, not in Sierra Leone. Is that fair on common Sierra Leoneans who pay the taxes he lavishes on his family abroad? The population statistics has since been falsified to create more voting constituencies in the Northern Province for political gains and vote riggings. To be honest, current politicians in my country are busy planting the second phase of civil unrest that may lead to another bloody civil war, and I will not keep my mouth shut but alert the world in this book. Mohamed Sannoh, Methodist Boys’ High School, Freetown Mohamed Sannoh is also the author of Mastering Business Administration in Education and African Politics (the Sierra Leone Chapter).

About the Author

Mohamed Sannoh suffered from tribalism in his native Sierra Leone, but life brought him to the United Kingdom with educational success at the Institute of Commercial Management and the Universities of Sunderland, Abertay Dundee, and Keele. He returned to Africa and introduced the Institute of Commercial Management (ICM) education programmes in the education system of Sierra Leone in 1993 and also in the Gambia in 1997 when he was the ICM regional coordinator for West Africa, responsible for marketing and educational development. Having taught business studies in various educational institutions in Sierra Leone and the Gambia, including his alma mater, the Methodist Boys’ High School (Laboramus Expectantes) in Freetown, Management Development Institute, Nusrat Senior School, and Institute of Professional Administration and Management in the Gambia, he is currently lecturing and researching at the Sharp Development Solutions (SDS) College in London. Mohamed Sannoh will soon be returning to Sierra Leone to introduce a different education system but will focus on rural education development to improve and develop primary, secondary, and vocational education facilities for village settings with the view of enabling young people in the villages to discover their environment resourceful and to avoid rural migration to urban slumps. Mohamed has completed extensive research on both the politics and education systems of Africa. His recent research coverage includes the causes and solutions to Africa’s civil conflicts, due for publication very soon. “Civil conflicts will never end in Africa until African politicians get their priorities right by providing educational sponsorships for unprivileged, rather than wasting state funds on constructing high roads and big buildings to flash public impressions. Education is for life, and once a people of a nation are provided with quality education, they are able to look after themselves well without too much interference of their governments.” Why can’t we have this in Africa?
